"The solution to this is a negotiation between the one person in the country who can sign something into law, the president of the United States, and our Democratic colleagues," McConnell said Tuesday when he blocked a House bill as well as a piece of legislation to fund DHS through Feb. 8. 

 

What's a veto override?

The pressure needs to ramp up on McConnell... he's as much to blame for the shutdown as anyone because they could open the Government up if he stops blocking the fucking votes.

 

It really makes no sense that he's essentially falling on the sword for the President.

He doesn't want to piss off Trump's base because that IS the Republican party now.

Senate republicans should be banging on Mitch’s fucking door. This is one of the most pathetic things I’ve ever seen. Luckily for them, the GOP base is largely made of mentally challenged people.

Don Blankenship should have been elected to take on Cocaine Mitch, change my mind.

His and his wife's jobs. He's up for reelection next year and could be primaried by a challenger from the right, who would probably win if they got the backing of Trump.

I really hope this #WheresMitch thing sticks.

 

How he's been able to go this long unscathed is incredible. He's able to retreat and hide like no one else I've ever seen. It's almost reptilian.

Furloughed federal employees who are using GoFundMe and other social media to raise money because they are not being paid are likely violating ethics rules and could face punishment when the government reopens, experts say.

a horrible situation is good news according to msnbc 

 

It's like when US media rallies around stories where someone has unpayable hospital bills and then strangers pitch into a gofundme and rescue them from insurmountable debt. Yes, it's nice that people did that, but the real story is how the health insurance situation in the US is deplorable.

 

"America is so great, look at the kindness" No, "America sucks ass and fails its citizens by not providing a fair and just society to live in."

Domino's is filling potholes, Kraft is feeding government workers, and Natty Light is paying off student loans. This isn't heartwarming marketing — it's a depressing look at how the American government is failing.

National Emergency? If so is it to change the subject off Cohen and Buzzfeed or are Republican Senators privately starting to buckle?
