Hypocritical Dems Threaten Government Shutdown Over Border Wall

Guest post by Aleister at American Lookout: When government shutdowns happened on Obama’s watch, Democrats who then controlled the Senate called Republicans terrorists and hostage takers.

Now that Democrats are in the minority, they’re threatening government shutdowns because they don’t want Trump to build the wall.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Schumer warns of government shutdown over border wall funding

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats will not vote for a must-pass government funding bill next month if it includes money for construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“That will not stand,” Schumer, D-N.Y., warned Monday in a Senate floor speech. “It would be inappropriate in our judgement to insist on the inclusions of such funding in a must-pass appropriations bill that is needed by the Republican majority to avoid a government shutdown.”

A short-term funding measure expires in April.

Republicans, who control majorities in both chambers, have not indicated what they plan to include in a bill that would fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year. Some options include supplemental funding for the military or additional money for building the border wall that President Trump promised during his campaign.

Schumer said if border wall funding is included, it would constitute a “poison pill” that Democrats would vote against.

So, even before he knows what will be included in the next spending bill, Chuck Schumer has decided he’s ready to become a “terrorist” and “hostage-taker?” That’s terrible. Surely the media is outraged!

…Of course they’re not. This is barely being reported. If it’s mentioned at all, it’s being portrayed as some sort of bold a righteous stand. Heck, Chris Coons (D-DE) even defended a potential shutdown as a “democratic weapon” on CNN.

My position is the same as it always was. If you want to shut down the government, great. Go for it. Most of what the federal beast does is completely unnecessary, and I welcome any opportunity to show the American people that they really don’t need their government as much as they’ve been lead to believe. The giant will slumber for a few days and, if you’re in the private sector, you probably won’t even notice.

The American people are already losing patience with Democrats over all this anti-Trump obstructionism.

It’s going to reach a breaking point eventually.
