Are we going to talk about this?

President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) remained in regular contact Saturday afternoon about a possible solution to the government shutdown that began at midnight, the first time a furlough of federal employees has occurred under single party control of Congress and the White House.

The two leaders have been talking by phone throughout the day and are prepared to meet in person, if necessary, according to a senior Senate aide, Earlier, two sources familiar with the plan said Trump and McConnell would meet in person, but instead they have kept their game planning to phone discussions, which is McConnell’s own preferred method of negotiations.

So far, Trump, McConnell and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) have struck a defiant tone, refusing to consider any of the Democratic demands on immigration or other issues until there is a bipartisan agreement to reopen the federal government.

Meanwhile, more than a dozen moderate lawmakers met Saturday afternoon in the office of Sen. Susan Collins (R-Me.) to try to advance a solution, according to Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.). Collins led a similar bipartisan group in 2013 that worked to resolve that year’s 16-day shutdown.

Moderates are “trying to find a pathway forward,” Manchin said.

nobody cares, the federal government is just a big, stupid and very expensive make-work program for armed asskissers who demand infinite free welfare and pensions. the longer it stays "closed" the better. maybe some of the suddenly unemployed welfareniggers will get a learn to actually earn a living for a change.
its an unfortunate consequence of giving government hiring preference to ex-mil, now all the jobs go to a select minority of overpaid incompetents who's only qualification is a track record of government ass kissing. The government can't do anything worthwhile or fulfill it's responsibility because its run by unqualified morons instead of professionals. 50 years ago NASA went to the moon on the double cause they were told to, these days the country can't produce a contemporary fighter jet for less than two trillion dollars. all the people in charge are the people who go on and on about how natural competition capitalism deregulation unfettered blah blah but then they can't do shit and they pocket all the money themselves instead of hiring people who can do shit and getting out of the way. so like let them starve or some shit, give them more money and they'll just start ramming destroyers into foreign tankers again, that shit will make people angry and start a war eventually fukkin a

I don't disagree with a lot of that, it's just a news topic.

>Two sources close to the president, one a White House official and the other a longtime confidant, told The Daily Beast how excited he was for the event and relayed his growing concern that the potential failure to strike a deal to keep the federal government open could keep him from “my party,” as the president has said.

>A different source who spoke to Trump earlier this week previously told The Daily Beast that the president had joked that it would be a “shame” if a government shutdown were to occur on, or overshadow, the first anniversary of his inauguration as president.

>After news of the shutdown broke, Trump reportedly began screaming at aides, threw a coffee pot against the Oval Office wall, and knocked over a Secret Service agent before locking himself inside the White House's master bedroom.

There are no good guys in this. IMO the government has failed to govern and every seat should be recalled.

the opposite. a "shutdown" is a shit bargaining chip. It was when Cruz used it, it still is now that Schumer thinks its cool.

the country has single party government, here is what that single party is providing
>can't keep the doors open
>doing it's best to prevent investigation into electoral irregularities while trying to discredit the electoral system at the same time
>excuses by the bucketload
>mega increase in national debt hidden amongst all the worse bad news (just like the bush years, cause a super big show scandal so nobody is paying attention when you pull off the real scam quietly)

one party with control of both houses of congress, the white house and the supreme court as well as the majority of statehouses and governor's mansion and who government is staffed by ex-military types.
and when something goes wrong with government someone else is to blame.
what a group of real men, right? lol
when the stock market does well they take all the credit.
the private sector doesn't have it's own spokesperson, it doesn't seem to need a propaganda minister or anything like that

The democrats apparently have as much spine as John McCain's statements about being "deeply concerned" about things have weight.
