We witnessed how the political left in America had mental breakdowns over the election of Donald Trump as our 45th president, instead of the one they had invested so much emotional devotion in, Hillary Clinton.
It was expected that the Democrats would be upset and voice objections, but from the amount of screaming from liberals like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, one would think their candidate, Hillary, had been robbed of her purse at the latest women’s march!
So Democrats are determined, now more than ever, to stop Trump each and every step of the way. That now includes not only undermining President Trump, but putting the entire government in a complete shutdown by refusing to participate in budget talks.
From Red State:
Texas Senator Ted Cruz is suggesting that with a government deadline for funding is swiftly approaching, Democrats are dragging their feet, playing politics with the nation’s well-being, and hoping for a shutdown.
Cruz told the Texas Tribune:
“I will say I’m concerned. I think [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer and the Democrats want a shutdown,” he said, according to the Texas Tribune.
He added that the party’s base is currently demanding that Senate Democrats “engage in across-the-board obstruction” to anything proposed by Republicans or President Trump.
“And so I do have some concern that to appease the radical left, Chuck Schumer and the Democrats may do everything they can to try to provoke a shutdown,” Cruz told Texas reporters.
Democrats are still following Hillary’s example by showing how petty they are when they don’t get their way!
Red State continued:
Lawmakers took a two week recess and once they get back to work, they’re not going to have a lot of time to play their political games, if they hope to make the April 28 deadline.
Some of the issues that seem to be causing upset include Democrats’ insistence that Obamacare payments be part of the budget, as a reaction to Trump’s proposed cancellation of insurer reimbursements.
Whether Trump actually intended to cancel the reimbursements is up for debate, as some saw it as a means of coercing cooperation on a healthcare bill from the Democrats.
Trump’s budget chief, Mick Mulvaney, on the other hand, is asking that more border security and defense spending be included, if lawmakers expect the president to sign the bill.
All during former President Obama’s administration, he repeatedly blamed Republicans for obstructionism whenever his pet projects weren’t approved. What the Democrats are doing now is actual, real obstructionism, in preventing President Trump from accomplishing what “we the voters” installed him to do: undo everything Obama did!
