Government Shutdown Looms!

They can't govern. 
Republicans have control of Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court. Why the hell are they blaming the Democrats for the pending government shutdown?

The Republicans basically shut the Democrats out of discussion when it came to the health care law, the Supreme Court and funding the government. Democrats said pass all the laws on your own.

Republicans "won" and want their proposals passed with a bipartisan Congress. The Democrats refuse to get behind a bill that uses taxpayers money to build a border wall. They especially refuse to pass any bill that requires them to repeal a historical feat like the ACA.

And Trump took to social media to attack the Democrats for not getting along with him and Republicans.

Republicans are still at odds over how to run a functional government. The "grown ups" can't even compromise on their own promise to "repeal and replace" Obamacare.

The Affordable Care Act, a signature health care law signed by then president Barack Obama has been the "fly in the ointment" for Republicans since its signing.

On his 100th day the U.S. government could shutdown.
Donald J. Trump promised within his first 100 days the health care law would be repealed and replaced with American solutions. So far these solutions were met with harsh criticism.

The proposal by the House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) was done in a closed room with the do-nothing House Freedom Caucus. Some of the moderate and rank-in-file Republicans are not willing to back this decision to exempt lawmakers from the bill.

Democrats want the Republicans to take off the table Obamacare repeal and border wall. They also ask for a bailout for the autonomous territory of Puerto Rico.

Trump so far is refusing to met with the Democrats and will not meet them halfway.

I say to the Democrats, keep the pressure on the Republicans. Make them sweat. Go to their town halls and demand they answer to why Russia meddled in the election. Demand the Congress to investigate members of his team who colluded with Russia. Demand Trump to show his tax returns.

Keep pressuring Republicans with facts on ACA, climate change, the stealing of Obama's Supreme Court nominee, bigotry and the Trump brand.
