POLL - Johnson Plan - What Should Dems Do? [View all]

Reading a lot of news articles online about the looming shutdown. Apparently SOTH Johnson has said he plans to rely on Democrat votes to help overcome the far right MAGA Caucus that objects.

The plan would fund Agriculture, Energy and Water, Military Construction-VA and Transportation-HUD until Jan. 19. The rest of the government, notably the Defense Department, would be funded until two weeks later Feb. 2. It also extends the farm bill, including food stamps until next September. It doesn't include the draconian cuts and border security demands of the MAGAts.


What should Democrats do. Granted it's not a great plan, but it avoids cuts Ds won't vote for AND slams the door on the MAGAt Caucus at the same time.
