We must focus on preventing a government shutdown and passing a budget

We have less then 3 weeks to pull it off and the odds are against us getting what we want. This new speaker is of the radical far right that will shut it all down and will hurt this country. Maybe during the next 3 weeks we can convince enough moderates republicans to force a vote or we're facing massive cuts of the safetynet, lgbt rights and investment in our own country or months of shut down government. This cluster fuck is only starting and I hope we're ready to campaign on it! We must tell the people that the republican party aims to gut their retirement, healthcare and destroy America's ability to compete in this world. We must tell them that we're utterly fucked as a first world society if they don't vote democratic next year. This is no joke.

We can't afford to focus on Israel or Ukraine as we're even more fucked then those countries and it is time to focus on ourselves. Focus on ourselves before we end up worse off then Iran, Russia or what the people have to deal with under the taliban. I am dead serious. We're in trouble. The enemy is kicking down the door.
