It’s ridiculous that the #SchumerShutdown occurred in the first place.
Today, I’m glad Senate Democrats came to their senses and ended this nonsense. It is, however, frustrating that this is the same plan offered to them last week before they shut down the government over immigration. This political stunt went too far. A majority of Americans support funding the federal government over continuing DACA.
Clearly, the budget process used by Congress is a total failure. It’s worked just four times in the last 43 years, and it will never work in this political climate. Tying policy debates to the funding process is the reason why we end up in these situations. It’s time that Congress finally gets serious about changing the way we fund the federal government. Then we can really being dealing with big ticket items, such as fixing our immigration system and rebuilding our infrastructure.
