Default Chuck Schumer In 2013: If Dems Shut Down The Government Over Immigration That Would B

Today's Chuck Schumer makes the 2013 Chuck Schumer look like a genius...

Chuck Schumer In 2013: If Dems Shut Down The Government Over Immigration That Would Be ‘A Politics Of Idiocy’

Quote:
This quote so perfectly sums up Democratic hypocrisy on the shutdown that when I first heard it being quoted by House Speaker Paul Ryan I wondered if it was real. But as you’ll see in a moment, it is real. Back in 2013, Sen. Chuck Schumer was giving an interview to Jake Tapper about the government shutdown which lasted for 16 days in October of that year. Tapper asked whether Democrats in the Senate had taken too hard a line with Republicans.

“It was not a hard line on the substantive issues,” Schumer replied. He continued, “It was a hard line saying, unless I get my way I’m going to shut the government down, I’m going to risk default for the nation. Now anyone can do that.

“I believe in immigration reform. What if I persuaded my caucus to say I’m going to shut the government down, I’m going to not pay our bills unless I get my way. It’s a politics of idiocy, of confrontation, of paralysis.”

Needless to say, what Schumer envisioned as the Democratic equivalent of the 2013 shutdown is exactly what he has done in the 2018 shutdown. By his own definition, he has embraced the politics of idiocy, confrontation, and paralysis. Schumer goes on to say that Senate Democrats and President Obama said, “We’re not going to give in to this kind of brinksmanship, where basically a gun is put to your head…”

Yah if only those democrats had control over all three branches of government they could have avoided a shutdown.

I loath the anti-Americans in office who try to push for amnesty/legal status for illegals. I am against any idea of a immigration reform compromise because history has taught us that any enforcement measures will hardly be enforced while illegals get amnesty. But I got to commend Schumer for doing any and everything he legally can to accomplish his goals. Nobody who voted for Schumer hoping he would give the republicans what they want and no one voted for Trump hoping he would give the democrats what they want. If this government shutdown ploy works and the anti-Americans in office get the amnesty/legal status they want for the illegals who were allegedly brought here as kids. Then everyone who voted republican should be mad at the republicans for caving and for not doing the same thing when Obama was president.

If democrats had control over 3 branches of government and a government shutdown happened then you would be condemning the republicans and making up bogus accusations of racism just like you do now about the president.

In the previous shutdown Democrats controlled the Presidency and had a Senate majority. Like today they simply refused to negotiate demanding a so-called clean bill accepting all their demands. The Republican controlled House passed 3 spending bills each with fresh concessions to the Democrats. Senate Democrats employed the parliamentary maneuver of tabling the bills without consideration. Senate staffers printed the last House bill from the internet before tabling it, Senate Democrats were so intent on rejecting the bill they couldn't even wait for formal delivery.

Now we have Democrats claiming they want to negotiate while offering the same amnesty now for border security later bait and switch. Schumer even recycles the WH agreement is like jello from John Boehner and the Republicans can't take yes for an answer from Obama, a sure indication of Democrat unthinking partisan obstruction.

This entire struggle in Congress is actually about the rule of law.

Schumer and the Democrats seem fine with Fiat law implementation but not democratic Congressional actions creating the laws of the land.
