As parts of the federal government continue to be shut down, Democrats are again blaming Republicans for the anti-American and childish actions of the Democrats.
Go back to 2013 and the infamous Sequestration that caused parts of the federal government to be shut down.
Barack Obama wanted an exorbitant spending bill passed, but House Republicans said the spending bill was irresponsible and that they would not support it. Obama threatened House Republicans telling them that if they didn’t pass HIS spending bill, that he would enact a sequestration, shutting down many parts of he federal government.
House Republicans refused to be bullied by Obama’s threat and would not pass HIS spending bill. As a result, OBAMA caused a government shutdown.
However, Democrats blamed Republicans for the government shutdown and criticized them for not compromising with the Democrats. The truth is, there was no compromise to be had as Democrats made it very clear that it was their way or no way. The media joined with Democrats in placing all of the blame on Republicans and their unwillingness to work together.
Jump forward to today. America is facing an invasion crisis that the country cannot afford economically and one that poses a serious threat to national security. In response to the threat, President Donald Trump wants enough funding to build a border wall to reduce or stop the invasion that could destroy our country.
Democrats refuse to fund one penny for border wall and have made it clear that that they are unwilling to compromise on the issue, much like they were unwilling to compromise with Republicans back in 2013.
President Trump has tried hard to be a man of his word, so when Democrats refused to pass any measure to fund the border wall, Trump allowed a partial government shutdown as he promised he would.
In the meantime, Trump has offered to compromise on the amount of border wall funding, but Democrats have refused to listen to or agree to any compromise. They still want it their way or no way. They truly have become the political party of NO compromise, while at the same time, blame Republicans for not open to compromise.
If you have seen any of the statements issued by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer or House Minority Leader (possible House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi, they are emphatic that they will NOT budget any funding for a border wall, proving that they are the guilty party in forcing the government shutdown.
Just like in 2013, the Democrats are the ones making unmovable demands and then turn and point the finger of blame at Republicans. Since the mainstream media is nothing more than the Democrats’ propaganda machine, they blast the one-sided and untruthful accusations across the airways and internet. I’ve listened to numerous news broadcasts and they all blame Trump and not the Democrats.
Sadly, many gullible Americans allow themselves to be brainwashed by the propaganda distributed by the mainstream media and will blame Republicans for the unwillingness to compromise of the Democrats. If only the American people will wake up to see that Democrats hate America and are dead set on destroying our nation.
