Default Congress now has enough support, Democrats and Republicans, to end shutdown

But Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell refuses to bring the votes to the Senate floor. McConnell is refusing to act as a separate but equal branch of the government as outlined in the constitution which was designed to prevent exactly what is happening today. The President holding the government hostage.

Quote:
Sen. Lindsey Grahamís call for a short-term deal to reopen the government while continuing negotiations on border security means that there is now a working majority in the Senate publicly willing to vote to end the shutdown. Fellow Republican Sens. Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, and Lisa Murkowski have all urged passage of bipartisan appropriations bills that would bring nearly 800,000 federal employees back to work. Add Graham and all the Senate Democrats, and you have 51 votes.

Back in December, the Senate passed its bill to keep the government open by voice vote, which is recorded as unanimous. That was before President Donald Trump changed his mind and said he would refuse to sign the bills.

The House is now run by Democrats who have already passed legislation to reopen the government. House Republicans are cracking too: The most recent appropriations bill passed for the Department of the Interior earned 10 Republican votes, inching closer to supermajority support. So itís reasonable to suggest that, under the surface, there may be enough support for the Graham option to override a presidential veto.

This means that one of the main impediments to ending the shutdown is not Trump but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has quietly aligned with Trump since the shutdown began. All McConnell would have to do to open the government would be to put the same bill that the Senate already passed back on the floor.

Yet McConnell has been adamant that he would not put anything up for a vote in the Senate that the president wouldnít sign, making numerous speeches on the Senate floor on the subject. He has steered clear of negotiations to end the shutdown, now in its fourth week. He rejected a compromise proposal from his own caucus to consider exchanging protections for Dreamers for wall funding.

Being proud that Trump is obstructing the checks and balances in place for good reason by having a douche with no spine or individual thoughts stand up for him just makes you look like a super fan.

I may not like McConnell's politics, but you can't deny he he is a master of the rules of the Senate. As long as there is no vote and nothing gets done, people blame Trump for the shutdown. He will leverage this to get whatever he wants out of Trump and then call for the vote.

I must be missing something here. Even if they pass something, if Trump vetos it, how are they going to get 2/3 of the votes to over ride his veto?

People talking about holding government hostage, three separate branches of government, obstructing the checks and balances.... yada yada yada. What exactly is Trump doing that isn't within his constitutional rights? I'll wait.

McConnell is too busy making sure we don't lift sanctions on Russians who attacked our democracy.

They literally are working harder for Russians than for Americans.
