Shutdown Schumer pulls funding for sick American kids in favor of illegals.

Republicans offered to fund CHIP for 6 years. Shutdown Schumer shot it down and pulled funding for poor, sick American kids in order to play politics with DACA.

DACA is in place until March, so they have plenty of time to deal with that. It has nothing to do with the budget.

Shutdown Schumer hates sick, poor American kids. What a tool. And all his lemming Dems followed in lock step.


The latest continuing resolution includes funding for CHIP for six years, but does not include include a codification of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program. This could derail the bill since Democrats have insisted that any funding bill include protections for the roughly 800,000 DACA recipients.

Once again, you are full of shit.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

Ryan voted for it here:

Here is why McConnell voted against it.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell voted against the measure so that he could reconsider the motion.
While the vote remained open, the funding for the government ran out at midnight.

If he voted in favor and it went down it would be dead. The vote remains open. You have no idea how the Senate works.

Why doesn't the Republican President want the bill of love like he did just days ago?

Because he caved like the gutless wonder he is to Republicans in congress.

DACA isn't a budget issue. Or at least is shouldn't be. Shutdown Shumer is making it an issue and blocking funding for poor, sick American children in favor of illegals and the unrelated DACA issue.

Next?

First, if you are going to act like a know it all by trashing Chuck Schumer, you should at least be able to spell the guy’s name correctly. Secondly, the Democrats have been pushing for the CHIP program funding to be renewed since late fall. It was the Republicans who chose to use it as a bargaining “chip” just like they are doing with DACA. You are not a child but you are certainly a sick adult by suggesting that Democrats don’t care about sick children. Get a life.

I don't give a fuck how he spells his name.

Dems talk a lot.........but when it came time to fund CHIP for 6 years they voted no.

Talk is cheap.

This is an example of why the Dems prefer to NOT have a budget and use CR's instead. They attack some wanna have to a funding bill as a blackmail effort to get their pet project accepted. DACA has nothing to do with funding the government....the Dems are now saying...put a whole immigration on the floor, pass it and we will pass the CR. There is no immigration Bill, at this time...so I would guess they have written one....and expect the Rep's to roll over and take whatever is in it.

Here is what your Shithole in Chief said regarding a potential government shutdown last May;

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!

All he has to do is rescind his executive order he should have never issued in the first place, and there won't be any issues at all.
