2020 Dems pose a big
dilemma for Schumer

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Alexander Bolton and Amie Parnes

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/17/2018 8:23:50 AM

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air. All three potential presidential candidates, along with two others, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders

As usual Dems have no interest in solving a problem. They want to keep it alive as a campaign wedge issue for years on end.

The dems have nothing. This will on be their head. Does anyone even care if the government shuts down?

Look up the history of government "shutdowns." This is really not so big of a deal. Essential services do not stop and the boogie-man does not crawl out from under the bed. It is, however, intensely hyped by the media and snowflakes may melt down, but the world will still turn on its axis.

Schumer warns: Democrats

Posted By: NorthernDog- 2/12/2018 1:42:55     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Democrats need a positive platform — not just anti-Trump sentiment — to win in this fall´s midterm elections, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday. "You cannot just run against Donald Trump," the New York Democrat said in a speech at the University of Louisville´s McConnell Center. "It is the job of we Democrats to put together a strong, cohesive economic group of proposals aimed at the middle class and those struggling to get there." It was Trump´s ability to connect with those voters, particularly working- and middle-class whites in the industrial midwest, that delivered him the presidency in

NBC Sports has apologized for an incendiary comment made during Friday´s Opening Ceremony led to widespread anger and tens of thousands of angry social media posts.

Washington - As a massive bipartisan budget deal moved towards a vote Thursday, temperatures were rising on the left, where Democrats were fuming that -- once again -- immigration was being left behind. "Anyone who votes for the Senate budget deal is colluding with this President and this administration to deport Dreamers. It is as simple as that," said Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a longtime Democratic advocate of immigration reform. Pro-immigration advocacy groups were sending similar messages to Democratic offices as well. Democrats on the left, especially members of the Congressional Hispanic

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has brought more than 100 actions against the Trump administration, starting just days after the Republican president was elected.

California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon may have expected to torpedo the idea of a statewide single-payer healthcare system for the long term last June, when he blocked a Senate bill on the issue from even receiving a hearing in his house. He was wrong, of course. His shelving of the Senate bill created a political uproar (including the threat of a recall effort), forcing him to create a special committee to examine the possibility of achieving universal health coverage in the state. On Monday and Wednesday, the Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage held its final

This Friday was supposed to be a father-daughter dance for elementary school students in Staten Island, New York. But now that dance had been postponed because of concerns that it would violate the state’s new gender guidelines that aim to create a more inclusive space for transgender people, according to the New York Post. “Gender-based policies, rules, and practices can have the effect of marginalizing, stigmatizing, stereotyping and excluding students, whether or not they are transgender or gender nonconforming,” read the guidelines from the New York City Department of Education. “For these reasons, schools should review such policies, rules and

The U.S. Postal Service, blasted by President Trump for enriching e-commerce giant Amazon at its own expense, posted a loss of $540 million in the last three months of the year, a period that´s typically its best quarter. The loss in the three months through December, which compared with profit of $1.44 billion a year earlier, was driven by declines in first-class mail volume, higher costs for retiree healthcare and increasing transportation expenses, the Postal Service said in a statement. The Christmas holiday period, which is the service´s first fiscal quarter, is usually buoyed by families and friends mailing cards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday "sexism" and a "macho atmosphere" helped doom Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said during a discussion at Columbia University. The liberal-leaning associate justice, who is 84 years old, shared a stage with CNN reporter Poppy Harlow and took a long pause before continuing. "I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes,

A tiny endangered butterfly could stop President Donald Trump from building his beloved border wall. A lawsuit has been filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, environmental groups and the State of California against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It outlines that the Quino checkerspot butterfly, Riverside fairy shrimp and the Pacific pocket mouse will be threatened if the border wall is built. The butterfly, which is native to southern California and Northern Mexico, is already on the endangered species list. The lawsuit contends that the Department of Homeland Security does not have the ability to waive environmental laws requiring review before building

CNN ran an absurd story Saturday afternoon, seemingly praising the sister of one the world’s most evil dictators for “stealing the show” at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The piece starts off, saying, “If ´diplomatic dance´ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un´s younger sister would be favored to win gold.” Hailing Kim Yo Jong as North Korea’s “answer” to Ivanka Trump, CNN claims that “with a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea's presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.”

A travesty occured in the chambers of Congress last night and early this morning. Republicans in Congress exposed themselves as hypocrites and frauds by passing an unconscionable two-year budget deal that will explode this year’s deficit and add $1.5 trillion to the debt. This is a level of spending that is three times larger than government spending in President Obama’s final year in office. A majority of Republicans in both chambers of Congress voted for the bill, and President Trump signed it Friday morning. Whatever pretense of fiscal conservatism the Republican Party once professed has vanished from all but a few

Republicans are weighing whether to raise the federal gas tax. It´s an idea they are prone to hate, but they may need it to pay for President Trump’s infrastructure investment plan. Supporters of the idea note that the tax hasn’t been raised since 1993 and have plenty of evidence that resistance to a hike is wearing down. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently called for the Trump administration and Congress to raise the gas tax by 25 cents per gallon to help pay for an infrastructure package, projecting it would generate more than $375 billion over a decade.
