    McConnell and Graham are both lard assed neocons whose sole claim to conservative credentials military spending other than that they can be reliably be counted on to vote conservative when it doesn't matter. McConnell is only still in the senate because of a huge Democratic cross over vote which he blatantly encourage against his last primary opponent. He outspent the guy ten to one and in the end he'd have lost the primary had it been a closed primary.

    Oh look.

    Still claiming something that isn't true, is true, despite multiple people showing the facts to you.

    Tsk tsk.

    Trump never moved the goal posts. Graham did.

    wow, attacking the messenger rather then the message, what's up?

    sometimes Trump's actions can't be defended, Trump supporters should just accept that

    Well go ahead and present something you'd like to complain about so I can destroy that too.

    Trump now has to sign anything Dems say.

    You go run with that one as long as you want.

    You gave your opinion.

    That's NOT anything LIKE a "requirement".

    Somehow Congress never got YOUR message

    Mmm, no.

    I gave you at least 5 links, 4 in one post, to MSM articles from your favorite liberal sources that clearly outlined the funding requirements.

    Then I went into great detail explaining the amount, how what was funded was only 10% of it, and how the proposal was designed for only 1 year of wall funding.

    Go read then maybe you can contribute.

    Agreed.....and shut down any funding that is associated with the Demos in any way shape or form.

    I doubt the leftness will answer the question.

    AT least the Repubs got smart and put up a site devoted to Chucky cheese Schumer and the Demos owning the government shutdown. Let social media surpass the Lame Stream Medias avoidance on setting the Demos out.

    Then the Lame Stream can play like Hillary, running around asking What Happened.

    You just shot yourself in the ass.

    Read your own links.Trump is asking for 18 billion over ten years. 1.8 yearly. There's 2.5 billion in this proposal.

    Oh...

    McConnell has no idea what Trump wants...

    Fake News.....McConnell came out and directly blamed the Demos and to top it off. He has a nice lil surprise for the Demos and their deviateness.



    Loren Duggan, editorial director for Bloomberg Government, discusses ongoing deliberations to prevent a government shutdown. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has said that he is planning for a shutdown, and would keep the Senate in session over the weekend, staging votes to embarrass democrats. He speaks with Bloomberg’s Nathan Hager and Peter Barnes on Bloomberg Radio’s "Politics, Policy, Power and Law."

    This is a Bloomberg podcast. To download, watch or listen to this report now, click on the thumbnail/player on the sidebar.....snip~

    The question to be answered is...Who is responsible for the looming government shutdown?

    And obviously,,,it's the GOP
