    Well supported argument, my friend. POTUS is married to an immigrant. GOP has repeatedly stated they want to help fix the Dreamers issue. The only difference between the two parties is one wants to enforce immigration law and the other doesn't (at the moment) for what I can only assume is political reasons since they were on record FOR tougher enforcement under Obama.

    There seems to be a misconception going on here. It's not a Budget Vote for the year. It's another case of the Congress not getting their act together to get a decent Budget and are trying to run another temporary one on us that is totally incomplete and only binding for the next 30 days. It's a stopgap only. What the American People should be angry at is that Congress (both sides) have been waging these petty little wars and blame game that the real work doesn't get done.

    Almost half of a Congress Critter's time is done to raise money for their reelection and raise money for the respective parties. This means that ALL of Congress is only working part time but are paid full time. Don't you think it's time to term limit?
