Ah, yes, watching these politicians argue over and over again throughout this entire Government shutdown is like watching a group of toddlers thrown into a room together with only one toy to play with. They’re not going to share or compromise, nope, they’re all going to fight and argue over who gets the one toy.
Nothing seems to change when there is no compromise, and it seems some political parties are unwilling to compromise at all. This makes coming up with a plan everyone can work with completely impossible.
On Wednesday it seems other politicians are getting tired of Nancy Pelosi and her lack of “seriousness”. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders put a verbal smack down on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Fox News Wednesday. Sanders said that congressional Democrats are holding things up with their ‘unwillingness to negotiate with President Donald Trump as there currently seems to be no give-and-take on his proposed border wall’.
They have been in a stalemate over President Trump and his proposed $5.7 billion plan to build the border wall. Democrats are refusing to offer a penny, and when someone asked Pelosi began to joked about the border security situation, saying she would only give a dollar to the wall. Talk about a childish remark.
While Pelosi makes jokes without offering any solutions, there are so many people going without paychecks right now. What I wonder is why the politicians still get paid, but the military men and women serving our country and working hard go without. I bet if we cut off their paychecks too, they would come up with a solution rather quickly.
Sanders told Fox News: “Nancy Pelosi has been unwilling to do anything, and it’s simply not going to work, and it’s not going to fix the problem. She’s gotta get serious about doing her job, and not just be serious about being a political figure.”
What is a real shame is that the White House held a lunch meeting on Wednesday. They invited both Democrats and Republicans to talk about the situation at the border, and to negotiate on reopening the government. Sadly however, only nine Republican lawmakers showed up, while there were absolutely zero Democrats that bothered to show up. If you ask me, if they can’t show up to negotiate, they shouldn’t have a say anymore since they clearly don’t seem to care.
Sanders even stated: “The president will negotiate, but at this point, he’s not going to negotiate with himself. He’s the only one that has a proposal on the table. Democrats have yet to put anything forward other than obstruction.”
The House is now Democratic and they are showing their unwillingness to do what needs to be done for the best entrist of our country. It’s a shame they can’t stop fighting like those toddlers over a toy, and grow up to make big kid decisions in a mature manner like they should be doing.
