2nd least trustworthy man in America says, “Trust me”

Filed in National by on January 22, 2018

If Democrats agree to end the shutdown without DACA and CHIP vote dates on the calendar, they are suckers.

As the scramble to end the government shutdown dragged into the work week Monday morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) urged senators in both parties to vote to fund the government until Feb. 8, and accept a loose promise from him to bring a bill to the floor that would address the status of the 700,000 young immigrants whose protections President Trump revoked last year, even if they don’t have an agreement with the White House or the House.

But, citing McConnell’s promises last year for votes on health care and immigration that were never honored, lawmakers in both parties say McConnell needs to offer something more concrete.

“I hope and intend that we can reach bipartisan solutions on issues such as military spending, immigration, and border security and disaster relief before the Feb. 8 deadline,” McConnell said. “Should these issues not be resolved by the time the funding bill before us expires, so long as the government remains open, it would be my intention to take up legislation here in the Senate that would address DACA, border security and related issues.”

    This deal is being pushed by a group of 20 senators including… wait for it… Chris Coons.

    @puck: He’s no genius, but Coons is the smartest person Delaware has sent to Washington in the 45 years I’ve lived here. Unfortunately, his courage ranks below 80% of the state’s chicken population.

    Why not ask for 67 yes votes on DACA and CHIP? Let the case of tertiary syphilis in the WH know he’s out voted and he’ll sign anything to avoid looking like he lost.
