Senator Pat Roberts: We're Stuck

Just a bit of Kansas shut down grandstanding amid very little progress on the Border Wall debate. Take a look:

Kansas' Pat Roberts mans Senate alone during shutdown | McClatchy Washington Bureau

The Kansas Republican took heat during his last re-election for not owning a home in Kansas. On Thursday just his wife, who lives with him in Virginia, joined Roberts to man the empty Senate.

Of course because he's the only Senator that stayed home.(Alexandria, Virginia) because he sure as hell doesn't live in Kansas. His Topeka address is a sham.

You would think Pelosi would be shoveling shit off the sidewalks in her hometown city on her time off.

Why aren't they passing a bill with wall funding???

Trump voters are the stupidest fuckers on Earth. YOU CONTROL BOTH HOUSES!!!! This is on Republicans!!! You are the ones that can't come to an agreement!! Stop listening to Hannity and Limbaugh!! You own this, even Trump said he would be proud to shut it down.

We don't have 60 votes in the Senate, that's why.

Must use another rule.

It's a waiting game. The Dems will blink. After Jan. 3 when Fancy Nancy and her Hawaiian tan take the speakership.

Everyone who works gets paid, sometimes a bit late. If you ever had to manage a payroll, you'd understand that.

Actually THR GOP did come to an agreement. But because it requires sixty votes in the senate to end a fillibuster the agreement cant be voted on
Even the stupidest fuckers on earth know that
Why dont you?

Tracy ands Sylvestor, I've started five different companies over my working career, and I HAVE NEVER ONCE MISSED A PAYROLL! The people working for me deserved to be paid, and paid on time, as a matter of honesty and respect from me. There were times where I didn't pay myself, but that was all part of the responsibilities I took on when I became their Leader.

How does the GOP know it does not have enough votes, WHEN THEY'VE NEVER EVEN TRIED TO BRING THEIR "AGREEMENT" TO A VOTE? Instead of "leading" this Country, what we've been treated to, from both the GOP Congress and your "Beloved Leader", is almost two years of whining, moaning, hand-wringing, bluster, and excuse making about how nothing can be done because of the "Dastardly Democrats"!

That is wearing a bit thin, and making the American Public wonder if the Republican Party truly has any core beliefs, values, or vision.
There seems to be more and more justification for the "REPUBLICAN'T" nickname that your Party has been tagged with.

DOO SOMETHING, OR AT LEAST ACTUALLY TRY TO DO SOMETHING before making excuses - the People they are supposed to be "leading" deserve at least that much respect from your Party.

For years, Trump has yelled about Mexico paying for the wall.

Not US taxpayers.

Democrats are just holding Trump to his promise.

It not Democrats fault that Trump can't make a deal with Mexico. It's not Democrats fault that Trump couldn't get this done in 2 years with complete control of the government and 50 vote reconciliation option available if he knew what he was doing.

Trump is finally running the government like his businesses.

Don't pay the workers, run up huge debt, and steer into bankruptcy.

So much winning...
