President Trump just announced a grand compromise to end the shutdown.
But Chuck Schumer and the Democrats refuse to budge a single inch.
And when the bill goes down, the full blame for the shutdown will fall squarely on Chuck Schumer’s shoulders.
You see, Trump’s grand compromise consists of two key bills and they’re both headed to the Senate for roll call votes.
Both of these bills could reopen the government immediately and they would each fund Trump’s requests for stronger border security.
But the kicker is Chuck Schumer holds the power to block each of them.
The bills need 60 ‘yes’ votes to pass. That means at least several Democrats must cross the aisle and vote with the GOP, but since Schumer directs the votes for Democrats, that’s unlikely to happen.
And when the bills fail, Schumer and the Democrats will be exposed.
Their feigned outrage over the government shutdown will be revealed as another dishonest ploy and then their charade will crumble like a house of cards.
On the other hand, Republicans are hard at work.
President Trump lined up a grueling schedule to meet with lawmakers.
Trump is working with the Congressmen to finally come to a solution and many of them are coming on board.
If his plan succeeds, the shutdown could be over this week. And the President is pushing his caucus to make it happen.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has his team working day and night.
He’s already cancelled a scheduled recess and his staff are burning the midnight oil.
But all this effort may be in vain.
The Democrats have signaled they won’t budge an inch and Chuck Schumer is driving his party to lock arms.
Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are whipping the Democrats into a frenzy.
They know that they need a firewall to block the pressure coming down from the President, but there’s one thing they can’t hold out against.
If the American people speak up, the Democrats will be in hot water.
As Schumer and Pelosi dig in tighter, they dig their own hole deeper.
And Americans are starting to see the problem.
Already, folks are waking up to the issue.
Trump’s endless work to find a compromise is bearing fruit.
The people can plainly see he’s working for them.
And the Democrats are doing just the opposite.
Even a bill just to pay federal workers was shut down.
Because this isn’t about helping people.
It’s about political power.
But for once a Republican is standing up to the liberals’ agenda.
Democrats are used to always getting their way.
Every day Trump stands strong is another slap in the face to the Democrats.
With the media on their side, they believe they can convince Americans of anything.
Even their radical agenda to open the border to Mexico and flood the nation with new voters.
Voters they plan to buy with government handouts.
The one problem is President Trump.
But soon the tables will change.
When Trump’s grand compromise is blocked by Democrats the truth will be revealed.
Chuck Schumer will be exposed.
And the Democrats will have no ploy to hide behind.
Now, what remains to be seen is whether Democrats will blindly follow Schumer’s direction.
Or whether some will cross the aisle in support of Trump.
