White House Planning for Long Shutdown
January 12, 2019 at 7:00 am EST By Taegan Goddard


“The U.S. government shutdown over President Trump’s demand for border wall funding became the longest in the modern era as it stretched into its 22nd day Saturday with no end in sight,” Bloomberg reports.

“Negotiations are at a standstill and no more talks are scheduled for the weekend or early next week. The White House scuttled efforts to reach a deal on Capitol Hill on Thursday, and Trump’s budget team is drawing up contingency plans for a shutdown that extends through the end of February.”

Axios: “This could go on for a long time. Early in the 1995 shutdown, Clinton and Republican leaders were already talking about a deal to end their budget battles. But Trump isn’t talking to Democrats anymore.

1. In this case, Trump isn't talking to Democrats anymore, is a good sign.

The more he talks about anything, the worse it gets.

We are now living in the Twilight Zone.

2. Trump thinks that negotiate means that he bullies his opponents until he gets what he wants

without giving any concessions himself. Republicans who go along with this tactic are as bad as Trump.

3. republicans are turning their backs on America by letting him* do this

and in the same instant with the same feckless gestures, republicans are remaining pathetically submissive to the freaking kremlin.

9. Mitch is up to his ears in rubles, as are many other Republicans, especially the most visible

ones, like Graham & Rubio.

4. With traitotrump's NRA problem [gun nuts afraid of emergency law making future anti gun precedent],

trump has trapped himself. A prolonged shutdown is sort of face saving.

8. The press should inform people that Trump isn't needed. Just an overridden veto.
