    Gather around kids, here is why I hate the GOP, they always talk a tough game but in the end they always cave.

    He will cave this time as well.

    Border agents and border protection furloughed while the government shuts down. Way to go, Republicans.

    It's either cave now or cave later.

    Republicans have a history of shutting down the government. This will make what? The fifth time in the past 25 years? And what have they gotten for it? In each case: NOTHING. This will end the same way. And those Republicans in swing districts are now in deep career trouble: and they know it.

    BTW, Democraps shut down the govt in 2018 over border security funding. The longest shutdown in history.

    I have a hard time understanding what this looming shut down is really about. One day it is about cutting funding for Ukraine. Next day it is about border security. The next it is about spending cuts. In the past, shutdowns coalesced around a central point like balanced budget or Obamacare. Now, the House Republicans can't even agree on a proposal to send to the Senate. Biden can't negotiate without something to negotiate with.

    I think this is a power play within the Party. New Gen Reps hate McCarthy and want him out, hate everything about the govt, and hate each other (Boebert vs Greene Influencer GOP Rep PPV fight coming soon.)

    Not worth a thread, I'll just put it here. Dianne Feinstein has cashed in, age 90.

    Oh yeah and her daughters get to fight over her $102 million fortune and private jet she used to hop from mansion to mansion.
    It pays well to be a woman of the poor and downtrodden.

    McCarthy caved. In the process though he protected republicans in swing districts. Lunatics like Gaetz and MTG won't be happy but I suspect there's not much they can do about it.

    Yes we know, I told you he would. I hope Gaetz gets his ass removed as speaker. They should have held their ground and never let him in there in the first place.
