The bait and switch here, which has been going on now for years, is GOP politicians saying they support Dreamer protections *in principle* but rejecting every single actual proposal that would do it. Over and over and over.
The GOP controls every branch of govt. I repeat: They control the WH & Congress. They've lurched from crisis to crisis for months w/o funding disaster recovery, health centers or children's health care. All while Dreamers hang in the balance. This is no way to govern.
Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.
While I t’s true, GOP controls House, Senate and WH.

By law, 60 votes required to keep govt running:

-90% (45) Republican senators voted to keep the government running.
- 10% (5) of Democrat senators voted to keep the government running

Now tell me again who’s obstructing?
Let's also be clear here, the leader of the GOP is a man who referred to African countries as "shithole" countries a few weeks ago **IN THE CONTEXT OF IMMIGRATION DISCUSSIONS**. It's clear what this is about. It's been clear from day one.
The facts:
→The GOP has control of the House, Senate & White House.
→Trump was the one who ended DACA & opposed the bipartisan compromise brought before him.
→The vast majority of Americans favor protecting Dreamers, funding CHIP & the government.

Let’s do those things.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do after a loss. Not this time.
This tax bill is only going to get worse as people learn more about it. There are 6 GOP Senators that have to run on it & 2 open seats in 2018. We all need to get to work.
Not shocking news, but a bit of color: GOP source tells me Trump is furious about the shutdown, which is messing up his anniversary and keeping him from going to Mar-a-Lago for his party.
BTW, the answer to the question "Why hasn't GOP funded CHIP" is now clear: They were always using it as a hostage/bargaining chip. They appear to view children's healthcare not as a good policy, but as a thing the other side wants that they will use to extract value.
