The current strategy by the GOP

Is to offer specific issue for the consideration of the senate and the president. Mindful of the fact that they will only offer issues which they favor. After they have concluded that effort  the  rest of the issues which democrats prefer would be left to dwindle on the vine.

 

Democrats may be stupid but they will not let republicans win bit by bit. So the result is  unyielding democrats or a presidential veto. They will not give you legislative victory bit by bit. So stick it where the sun don't shine. It's the whole enchalata or nothing.

 

This hard ball politics and anything less would be silly. If you want to end the shutdown vote for passage of the whole CR. Any thing  less is dead on arrival.

The best political mix would be a 49 to 51% representation in congress. That way only a few votes will change any outcome and everyone, both parties will behave

Then the democrats will keep the government closed. It is on their backs.

Too bad, 90% of this is politics, on both sides, without enough adults in the room, to do the right thing.


Just reinforces my thoughts on term limits, and all the good it would do to not have Washington full of career politicians.

But when their term of office expires, they have to go home and not become lobyists. They have to live like the rest of us
