Why isn't the media putting more pressure on Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans

They have the power to end the shutdown.

3. Man..they have beaten that horse so long it has literally disintegrated.

How many Hundreds of serious serious crimes are the gop going to try justify/nullify bc of a consentual sex act that was nobodies business to begin with? JaYsus Christ. Thats a non starter anymore folks. The Clintons cant possibly cast a shadow on the gleaming sun that is the antiseptic soul food sunshine, on the trump family evils and the russians spys who loved them. Maybe this is what we need to stop him if we have to let the time run out. No more damage.

4. Because the right-winged called "liberal media" has actually been the conservative press all along.

5. I believe that it's up to us to make the media do it

They're huge corporations with conservative interests. But ultimately they need us. So we need to lean on them.

6. Any Dem That Appears On Any News Show....

should be making that point over and over - that McConnell and the Repugs have the ability to end this shutdown immediately if McConnell calls for the vote. The votes are there in the Senate to make it veto proof.

The Dems need to keep the pressure on McConnell and the Repugs every chance they get.

7. Exactly. This is where the Democrats need to get discipline. It is not our best thing, though.

9. I totally agree, and it would not be difficult to do with the help of a good PR firm. But that is

something that many here do not like to speak about. I don't know why, because it seems self evident that many of the American people still don't understand where their bread is buttered with respect to the two parties.
