Senate Democrats ready to end the shutdown after GOP promises immigration vote

Chuck Schumer shutdown debate

Senate Democrats said Monday they are prepared to end the three-day government shutdown by voting in favor of a bill that would keep the government operating through Feb. 8.

“I think it’ll be open by what? 12:10? 12:15?” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said ahead of planned Senate vote to end the shutdown.

“We’re going to reopen the government,” added Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va. He said Democrats have assurances from Republicans that they will try to tackle immigration once the government is reopened, but they didn’t fully describe the promises made.

Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, also said he would vote to end the shutdown.

    Amazing how history repeats itself. In 2013, with a shut down looming, the GOP and Democrat leaders in Congress were meeting with President Obama. Following the meeting, (aptly named) Dick Durbin goes on Facebook and says one of the GOP members said to the President. “I can not even look at you right now”. This was denied by all the GOP and Democrat Congress members at the meeting, as well as Presidential Spokesperson Jay Carney. However, because of this lie, the deal was soured and Obama got the shut down he wanted. Fast forward 5 years and he does the same thing. Biggest difference is that the people are smarter now and KNOW it was the Democrats fault for the shut down. Also, most folks realize that if 9 of 10 people in a room tell one story and only one )with a history of this type of lying) tells a different one, they can tell who the liar is.

    Demo☭rats are not patriots, not anymore!

    The ☭Traitors have an agenda that transcends patriotism, the rule of law and national security.

    Democrats must have been getting a lot of complaints from our veterans and soldiers. I’m not one but I sent our local Schumer a complaint, boy did I. However I would like to know what besides funding the gov’t is in the “new” compromise.
