'Are you ruining my life?': Republican senators in disbelief over Trump shutdown threat

Source: CNN

Republican Sen. Susan Collins almost dropped her handbag Thursday as she gestured disbelief at word, delivered to her by reporters in the Capitol, that President Donald Trump would not sign the budget extension to keep government funded until February unless border wall money was added.

"Did he just say that?" she asked as she left a Republican lunch. "Ugh, are you ruining my life?"

... snip...

Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, said he and other senators at the sparsely attended GOP lunch found out Trump wouldn't sign the bill when someone read aloud a tweet with the news. He said that after the tweet, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell went to speak to Ryan about it.

... snip...

He said so many senators had departed the Capitol looked like a "ghost town." In addition, he said there are concerns that so many of the retiring and defeated Republican House members had not returned to DC, for these final votes of the session, that there were doubts about House leaders could pass anything that didn't have Democratic support. Roughly 40 members of Congress from both chambers and parties have missed votes in this latest series of votes, adding another complication to the last-ditch scramble.

33. That is all Republicans are.

They don't care about anyone else. That is why they are on the wrong side of current demographics. That is why they are going to fail in 2020.

Senator Collins has once again shown her true colors.

Democrats should never, ever expect her to vote with them.

6. "there were doubts about House leaders could pass anything that didn't have Democratic support"

They glued their very souls to that "Hastert Rule" bullshit - i.e.,they must have a "majority of the majority (GOP)" in order to advance a bill. Yet the media blames "both sides" for the dysfunction.

20. Excellent points. Media "fair and balanced"? Only when it serves their purposes.

MSM: Get some guts and speak how you feel. And keep doing it even tho your bosses are in the same country club as the creeps.

7. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) "started laughing when he was told of Trump's decision"

[From The Hill]

"Well, why not?," he quipped, asked why he was laughing, adding that he was "not really" surprised by Trump's decision.

Asked if he thought the continuing resolution (CR) could still be signed, Corker added that it's impossible to predict what Trump would do.

21. "asked why he was laughing"

Well that was a stupid question to him. He didn't run for re-election and is about to be replaced by a batshit crazy loon, so he is going bye bye out of that chamber for good. He really doesn't care.

I mean come on CNN.

He leaves as one of, if not THE, wealthiest people in the government. Being on the banking committee has it's perks, doesn't it?

and you're not alone. You have plenty of company with all the Republicans hiding under their desks when Trump tweets. Please spare us your surprise and shock at the idiotic things he does. Most of us knew what he is in 2015.

23. Half right. Definitely ruining your life, but it's not us

It's your fearless Leader. Remember him? Oh, yeah, none of you do any more---until he needs your vote for the next outlandish appointment. And now, more of you than before will vote like flakes when the only guy with that as his actual name isn't even there any more.

and maybe then something will be done. Look at Kansas. Recently elected legislators are changing party.
