What can Democrats do to get government working again?

Obviously tRump is having a 3 yr old tantrum and it's going to be up to us to be the adults. How can we get the government up and running. Looking for ideas here...

Trump White House urging allies to prepare for possible RBG departure

The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible death or departure from the Supreme Court — an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump’s tenure.

The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. The justice, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, announced in late December that she underwent a surgical procedure to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs.

Remember when tRump duped the media?

tRump told the press he was going to comment on Obama's birth... The press jumped into action and covered 30 minutes of veterans saying how great tRump was. Then at the very end of the event he said one sentence - something like Obama was born in the US and I got him to reveal his birth certificate, the end.

I feel like tRump might be duping the press again. The press thinks he might declare and emergency so they are going to cover him. But he might just be using that to get a 30 minute commercial for his wall. tRump would do something like this. He did it once before.

So how and when will the government open?

Seems like no way to end it. Both sides vowing not to give in. How do you see the end game playing out?

What are your top 3 items for congress?

In order of impotance:
1. Impeachment
2. Heathcare
3. Universal basic income for all

Can we put all this ageism aside?

Today a 78 year old women is in charge of congress and that is a great thing. In the months ahead there will be countless discussions of candidates to run for president - some younger and some older (Joe Biden and Bernie). I don't want to here people saying someone is too old to do this or that. That's pure ageism. Let us judge people by the content of there messages and not by the wrinkles in their skin. That is all thank you.

Dem lawmaker to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) intends to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump on Thursday as the new session of Congress convenes.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Sherman's measure will accuse Trump of obstruction of justice in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, among other things.

"There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman told the news outlet. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”

I'm calling on congress to take up social issues...

With the stock market tanking and our retirement plans circling the drain congress need to sure up social security and health insurance. We probably should also add a minimum wage for all Americans. If we don't tackle these issues I'm probably going to end up in the slums eating Alpo for supper. It seems like my retirement plan has finally caught up from the 2008-9 crash and now this! I just can't win. Sigh...
