Keep the govt. shutdown in place until they agree to DACA. Its time to make a stand. Remember

Trump and the republicans lied about DACA. Trump fucked up by ending DACA. Yes , I do feel sorry for govt. workers but we have reached a point where the democrats must stand their ground or things will continue to get worse.

Remember, The republicans shut down the Govt. over giving healthcare to people. They don't give shit. The democrats have right on their side. If they back down the republicans will continue doing evil shit. They will continue to lie. Its time to kick their asses.

If they force the republicans and Trump to agree to DACA reform they will lose part of their base. That will hurt them in November. The Democrats have them by their balls if they hold firm.

1. That's why Republicans are digging in their heels against DACA

They know they lose a big chunk of the base if it passes.

4. Yes, it has to be both CHIPS and DACA

completely enacted....including DJT signature

B4 anything else on funding the government.

GOP and Trump killed CHIPs and DACA...make them restore it first.

2. And at least a 10 year funding plan for CHIP

and stop damaging ACA. Leave the government programs alone such as SS, Medicare, Medicaid, HUD, SNAP, welfare, Disability, and more, alone.

Raise the minumim wage across board cause with this tax scam, corporations and realtors can afford it and still make a killing on gawd damn profits.

3. Might not be the best tactic

 

Remember, the republican base generally thinks of the government as at best a necessary evil and at worse a leech. I'd bet dollars to donuts that the base is not at all upset about t being shut down and most likely will be more than happy that this continue to be the case for an extended period of time.

5. Im a federal employee

Iím classified as essential personnel, so I showed up to work without pay today.

Thatís fine.

I resent being used as a bargaining chip, and DACA recipients deserve fair and humane treatment.

I got enough savings to last me awhile. So bring it on!
