Dems are acting like the fools they are. A week and a half into a partial government shutdown, House Democrats released their plan to re-open the government without approving money for President Donald Trump's border wall. At the same time, the president tried to find leverage to break the stalemate before the GOP's monopoly on Washington power ended.
Democrats in the House unveiled two bills to fund shuttered government agencies and put hundreds of thousands of federal workers back on the job. They planned to pass them as soon as the new Congress convened Thursday, one of the first acts after Democrats take control.
Whether the Republican-led Senate, under Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, would consider the bills — or if Trump would sign either into law. McConnell spokesman Donald Stewart said Senate Republicans would not take action without Trump's backing.plan and spoke on condition of anonymity. The bill is a non started - going nowhere.
