Fallacy in "Declare national emergency and then Congress can vote to open government" updated OP

Last edited Sat Jan 12, 2019, 02:43 PM - Edit history (1)

Why do we assume that one follows the other?

THE KEY IS THIS: McConnell must bring the vote to the floor. There is no mention of that in this prediction.


Trump can declare national emergency, steal money for the wall, and still keep government shuttered.

This premise is a potential trick, is it not?

The extended shutdown is likely to bring chaos to the streets, and increasing trouble in our daily lives. Putin's dream. Chaos in America.

Change it to this: Declare national emergency and McConnell will bring the vote to the floor so government will open.

That ain't what Trump is saying.

3. I wonder if the Democrats would vote to pass a budget if he did this.

They could instead say that moving forward with emergency rule will make reopening government impossible.
