The deadline for the Congress to workout a deal to avert a Government shutdown is over and Democrats have succeeded in shutting down the United States government!
Senator Chuck Shumer and President Trump could not work out a compromise to prevent the shutdown.
A bitterly divided Washington could not compromise over federal spending and legislation to protect some 700,000 younger immigrants from deportation.
Government Funding Bill past last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate – but they want illegal immigration and weak borders. Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!

Senate Majority Sen. Mitch McConnell is blaming the shutdown on the Democrats’ enthusiasm for “illegal immigration,” suggesting that he recognizes the public’s hostility to the Democrats’ no-strings amnesty push.
Trump and Schumer, who both pride themselves on their deal-making abilities, emerged from the meeting at the White House without an agreement.
Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer also has polling data which show the Democrats lose if the public blames the shutdown on the Democrats’ push for amnesty.
Republicans and Democrats in Congress continued to trade blame as the midnight deadline approached.
“We made some progress, but we still have a good number of disagreements,” Schumer told reporters upon returning to Capitol Hill.
As news of the Schumer meeting spread, the White House sought to reassure Republican congressional leaders that Trump would not make any major policy concessions, said a person familiar with the conversations but not authorized to be quoted by name.
Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas said Trump told Schumer to work things out with McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. “The ball is in Sen. Schumer’s court,” Cornyn said.
Democrats in the Senate have served notice they will filibuster a four-week, government-wide funding bill that cleared the House Thursday evening. That could expose them to charges that they are responsible for a shutdown, but they point the finger at Republicans instead.
Republicans were willing to pass a DACA solution. They required some conditions to deal with some of the ramifications of illegal immigration in return.
Democrats wanted their way or the highway.
I say close the federal government down for 2 years and let’s see what happens!
