The real reason it didn't pass:

Quote:
The official party line expressed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is that no bill should come up for a vote until U.S. President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans agree to end the ongoing government shutdown.
Whining democrats throwing a temper tantrum refusing to do their jobs, like a little kid holding his breath until mom gives him the candy.

however it was done [I think that's called intelligent work] thank God for those defeating this bill. It put Israeli citizens above American citizens in our very own country.

Democrats routinely act as if illegal aliens have superior rights to US citizens. They are able to violate immigration laws with impunity. They can commit felonious ID theft openly. Drive without a license or insurance. Receive welfare under the pretext of benefiting their anchor babies. Avoid paying taxes.

This is funny. The House passed 7 bills to reopen the government and McConnell refuses to allow a vote on them. How is that not an example of Republicans "throwing a temper tantrum refusing to do their jobs, like a little kid holding his breath until mom gives him the candy."

If memory serves during the last shutdown the Republican house past over a dozen bills to reopen the government and Reid refused to allow a vote on them. Yet, every liberal like yourself place all the blame on the house. Hypocrite.

The better question would be why is the house bothering with bills they know are non-starters in the senate and whitehouse? Also, why are they using that as an excuse to not do their jobs on this bill?

So, to be clear, you believe that unless the House passes what Trump wants, they are not doing their jobs? The simple fact is that the funding bills that have already passed the House would pass in the Senate if put to a vote (given the number of Republican Senators who have now said they would support them). All that’s blocking them is McConnell’s refusal to allow such a vote. One guy is refusing to do his job here, and his name is Mitch McConnell (which is certainly no surprise, given how he refused to do his job on the Garland nomination for almost 10 months).
