IMO, members of Congress on both sides of the aisles are just being arrogant a-holes who think behaving like immature teenagers is a way to end this shutdown! :evil:

Why waste the tome if it doesn’t fund the wall republicans won’t vote for it and trump won’t sign it. Democrats don’t have 2/3rd to overrule it.

Republicans did vote through a bill that didn't fund the wall. Only Trump through a hissy fit after Fox News didn't like it, and now Mitch Mcconnell doesn't let the Senate vote on a bill that the Senate approved just a few weeks ago.

So much for blaming it all on Democrats.
