Chuck Schumer Warns of Government Shutdown Over Trump’s Border Wall

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has decided he has had enough of the Republican dominated Senate and is making some big claims. Senator Chuck Schumer was unanimously elected to replace Senator Harry Reid as the Senate Minority leader this past Fall.

He has taken issue most vehemently with the proposed defunding of Planned Parenthood, the immigration policy, and Donald Trump’s border wall plans that were submitted for congressional approval. While the majority of Donald Trump’s propositions have passed incredibly easily this one is more difficult. Even though the Republicans have a clear lead in both the house and the senate this situation is different. A spending bill needs a much higher approval to pass, and Senator Schumer is threatening government shutdown as the only way they will respond to such a budget.

Many are looking back on a similar situation that took place in 2013, just four years ago when Republicans tried to force Obama and the democratic congress to defund Obama’s infamous health plan. It was a failed attempt, and the results of the government shutdown were disastrous in some cases with hundreds of thousands of government employees directly impacted as a result.

All for a government shutdown that way Trump can issue pink slips with due cause without any repercussions. Let them shutdown all they want. Schumer doesn't understand, the Democrats power has been severely crippled in DC because of their greed and lack of American values. See ya, Chuckie boy.

Pink Slip Fridays are becoming my favorite federal holidays. Cast all the career government to the unemployment lines and let them deal with what everyone else has been dealing with because of their stupid policies, rules, regulations and procedures.

Does he really think he will have enough followers to allow this. Funny he bitched about the Republicans talking about a government shutdown under Obama.

That didn't work out so well when the Republicans tried it. It was turned into a political weapon by the dems. I wonder why the dems think THEY can do it, without any ramifications? Federal employees do not like being laid off, and constituents do not like having to do without government services. Go ahead Schumer, shoot your party in the foot over the wall AMERICA wants.

Federal employees make out nicely after a shut down. Most are prob liberals anyway so they will never stop supporting these idiots. It is a win win for most of them.
