6. This is what I've been saying since the shutdown started.

We've got to shove this in their faces to make it real. Then they can withdraw their demands and we can withdraw ours and do what should have been done to begin with.

If the minority party in one house (or the President alone for that matter) can blackmail the other 2 parties to the agreement and force legislation through during an emergency, Republicans should never be able to assume Democrats won't risk the destruction of the country just as much as Republickers are now.
