The government, once again, is shutdown over another spending bill. However, depending on who you ask, you will find that it’s either President Trump to blame or the Republicans. Honestly, isn’t it all about how you look at it?
So what… the government is shutdown. Quite frankly, many are excited at that statement. Thinking of it that way would have us thinking that at least they aren’t wasting any more taxpayer money on reckless and frivolous spending.
But this is about something bigger. Much bigger!
Hop in a time machine real quick as we travel back to 2013. Do you remember? Washington was pounding away at a spending bill and nobody could hash things out. So… since they couldn’t pass it, the government ran out of money and it was forced into a shutdown.
At the time, it was all because the Republicans wouldn’t budge and give Obama and the Democrats what they wanted. It was never Obama at fault. It was never the fault of the Democrats. All the blame was put on the Republicans. If you tried to argue against it, you were, of course, on the dark side.
Okay, hop back in and let’s travel back to present day. Once again, Washington was faced with passing another spending bill. Only this time, there was a Republican President. And, and, the Republicans have a majority in the House and Senate.
So… who’s at fault? That’s right! Trump. It’s all his fault and nobody else’s. Sure, we still blame the Republicans, because, after all, they have the majority and they do whatever Trump tells them to do.
Sure, that’s one way to think about it. But, it’s a silly way to think about it.
It’s what’s at play that’s the bigger picture.
Let’s focus our attention on the Democrats! There is a spending bill on the floor that everyone in Washington is okay with. Yes, even the Democrats. They’re fine with it. However, they also want to fund DACA and the illegal activities of illegal immigrants. Republicans, on the other hand, say no.
So, why not pass the bill and then work on passing immigration reform? Plain and simple. The Democrats care about putting illegal immigrants ahead of America. And, they care so much about it that they are willing to shut down the government.
But, and here’s where it gets kind of silly… it’s STILL Trump’s fault. No matter how you want to spin it, and people are doing their best to do so, we’re NOT allowed to blame Democrats for anything.
