Just saw interview with Rachel and Chuck Schumer...There were protesters at his house. Why?Why?

Why not protest at GOP homes...pick the most vulnerable house and Senate GOP members and let them have it. The Dems are on the side of Dreamers but don't have the power to save them...and yet they take shots at those that agree with them and ignore those who issued an executive order rescinding DACA (president) and those who have done nothing who have a majority in Congress (the Republican house and senate members. We don't have the levers of powers. So scream that you won't vote Democratic and maybe even follow through and what will happen...more Gop who will make worse laws and then folks will scream for the Democrats to save them...demand it ...but we can't because you all took the keys away...and we are not steering the 'government' vehicle. It might help to target the GOP elected. It won't help to target Democrats who will do everything they can because they believe in DACA and want to save the dreamers. If the Democrats had control of the government, the dreamers would not be at risk. Think about that.

We got the best deal possible.CHIP for 6 years/ DACA Vote in a couple of weeks.

We have another chance and got CHIP...I think it is the best we could do. Also, no more American kids vs DACA...which would hurt DACA.

At least three Repubs didn't vote for the CR

Thus, it was not the Democrat shutting the government down. And Trump is on his way to Florida to play golf and fund raise...probably the worst optics in the history of optics. I am glad we hung tough. We had no choice. I only hope the shutdown doesn't last long as this affects the lives of millions of people.
