Democrats are more into their political goals than helping the country.

On Thursday, the Senate held a vote to keep the government open through the holidays until the issue is revisited again in mid-January. Keeping things going is important so that people continue to receive the vital services provided to them through various programs, so one would think it would be an easy “yes” vote for everyone in the Senate, but you’d be wrong.

Since Democrats really don’t care about the people they represent, let alone the vast majority of the country, a staggering number of them decided to actually vote against keeping the government going for another month or so. Further, they actually voted against disaster relief, as if that’s even a conscionable thing to do.


Because they didn’t get exactly what they wanted. Meanwhile, they’re supposed to be the “party of the little guy.”

Sure thing.

From the Daily Caller:

The funding bill, called a continuing resolution, keeps the government open through mid-January. The legislation needed at least 60 votes and passed by 66 votes, with 32 nays and two senators not voting. That’s double the 14 Democrats who dissented against the temporary spending bill two weeks ago.

Most of the nay votes were from Democrats who are desperate to deal with immigration issues. During a caucus meeting Thursday, Democratic Rep. Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois criticized Schumer for not caring about the future of Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and for “throwing them under the bus,” the Washington Post reports.

Schumer, who voted no on the spending bill, issued an ultimatum to the GOP that his party would not vote for anything more than a short term bill until Congress addresses immigration and wider domestic spending issues. He also mentioned that the $81 billion emergency spending bill the House passed Thursday would not go forward until the Senate addressed other issues.

“We’re not going to allow things like disaster relief to go forward without discussing some of these other issues we care about,” Schumer said. “We have to solve these issues together.”

Okay, Chuck. How do you explain that to the millions and millions of people in dire need of help right now?

You don’t.
