Dems want the Government to shut down because this is their only hope of slowing economy.

The Democrat Party is grasping at straws. They can clearly see how quickly Conservative economics can lift an economy. They don't know what to do! They have tried to obstruct Trump at every step, yet he keeps on winning :)
So I guess shutting down the Government is their last ditch effort.

Democrats know full well that after eight long years of their Party's Liberal policies and war on business, and not being able to get past an enemic 2% GDP growth, that Trump and the GOP are proving the truth to the benefits of lower taxes and free market business.

Can you even imagine if the Black community were experiencing less than 7% unemployment (a record) on Obama's watch? There would have been non stop celebrations of how the Left's policies do work, and how they are the only ones who truly care for African Americans.
When Trump accompliches this feat in less than a year, not one peep from Democrats, but rather non stop judgmental rants of RACIST!

Repubicans know that a good economy lifts all ships, and is the only real answer to helping the poor. Able bodied People need jobs, not food stamps. Yes we all understand there must be safety nets for those who can not help themselves, but the majority of people using social programs are anything but helpless.
They need to be encouraged to get off the dole. Tough love works! No Fault bleeding heart Liberalsim has proven NOT to work. After eight years of Obama, record numbers of people on food stamps, welfare, etc.

When you enable laziness, irresponsibility, and Government dependence, you will get more of the same. This is exactly what the Democrat Party wants because it translates to more votes.

Trump once said if the Government shuts down it is ultimately the President who is responsible as the leader. Also Republicans control House and Senate. Sounds like the one's wanting the shut down are the ones who are currently in control and our "leader" who bragged at being a "deal maker".

Spot on! For anyone curious, here's a few quotes from Trump addressing the government shutdown.

“Problems start from the top, and they have to get solved from the top, and the President’s the leader, and he’s got to get everybody in a room, and he’s got to lead. And he doesn’t do that, he doesn’t like doing that, that’s not his strength. And that’s why you have this horrible situation going on in Washington. It’s a very, very bad thing and it’s very embarrassing worldwide.” - Donald Trump, September 2013

"Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible." - Donald Trump, November 2013

"Well, very simply, you have to get everybody in a room. You have to be a leader. The president has to lead. He’s got to get [the Speaker of the House] and everybody else in a room, and they have to make a deal. You have to be nice, and be angry, and be wild, and cajole, and do all sorts of things. But you have to get a deal." Donald Trump, October 2013

Yup, but instead of addressing that his hardcore supporters what to bypass what he claimed, per usual, and point the finger at anyone else.

To them, it's everyone but the Republicans or the President's fault.

By burning a giant hole in the ozone layer and giving us all sunburn? By rolling back national park protections? By erasing biodiversity? That's not the Democrat party, that's the Rewhiner Party.

PS. Saying Democrat Party makes you sound stupid. It also bothers the hell out of me.

So you don't want a response to your post? Why on earth would you post on the moron's copied debate?

Remember folks when the Government shuts down when it has a Republican controlled House, Senate and Presidency. It's entirely the Democrats fault!

The Republicans would need 60 votes to stop the Democrats from shutting down the government, and it only has 51. Your narrative doesn't even make any sense.

I have never understood liberals or conservatives acting like petulant children.

“Here’s the truth, the gov't doesn’t shutdown” All essential services continue. Don't believe lies.

-Donald Trump, 23 Sep 2013 (source)



"Does any Republican have the ability to negotiate?" -Donald Trump, 2 Jan 2013 (source)

He's correct. You should learn something about government shutdowns. They happen fairly often. The government just keeps on going. No Armageddon.
