Since the RW infiltrators have been booted mostly on this topic yesterday....

The Republicans got shit*, we got CHIP and 20 days to sell an already overwhelmingly agreeable public on creating a principled pathway to citizenship as outlined in the Flake/Graham/Durbin bill (wall funding and military as wanted by Republicans) rejected by Shitler on Friday before he went comatose for the weekend.

Enough. The tsunami of disinformation, left and right media, is over. The Truth about yesterdays vote quickly got it's pants on.

Unite or the next tsunami is going to really hurt.

*name one, other than generalized "victory"

You've got several senators, and a House Minority leader that don't seem to agree with you.

I'm afraid that the Senate will pass something, and the House will never take it up.

Having a modicum of D Senators/Congressman take a stronger position only helps to put pressure on the Rs. In effect, we are having our cake and eating it too.

I mean, there's probably a few earnest folks in there, but I suspect that there are also a share of "glad I don't have to vote for this" types as well. I don't think the DREAMERS think that their having their cake too though. This will make it easier for the House and the White House to ignore the Senate on immigration.
