You did state this in post #8, didn't you?

Quote:
"The last significant Federal government "shutdown" was precipitated by Senate Democrats and President Obama insisting their spending proposals must be passed with no amendments. The Republican-controlled House passed 3 bills that would have avoided the shutdown only to have Democrats in the Senate block consideration with parliamentary subterfuge. "

Still struggling with that olé reading thing. The comment clearly shows who wrote it, me.

Now that I have answered your question, kindly return the courtesy by providing a quote and link where Trump advocated doing away with Social Security. Alternatively, admitting the claim is partisan nonsense would be an improvement.

Kindly point out the post #where I discussed Social Security in this thread which is titled “Can Congress stop a Govt. Shut Down?” Talk about having reading problems.
