After 3 days of a Schumer Shutdown, only one question remains for Democrats: What was the point??
Democrats have managed to accede to Republican demands, demoralize their energized base, give a disengaged president a win, and look like they held a meaningless three day government shutdown — all at once.— Matt Viser (@mviser) January 22, 2018
We now await Democrats’ spin about how this isn’t a cave— Erica Werner (@ericawerner) January 22, 2018
If this thing passes at noon, WOW. Democrats got nothing in this. Can someone please remind me why this happened to begin with? Wasn't it abt a DACA deal? There is no DACA deal— Rachael Bade (@rachaelmbade) January 22, 2018
Can someone clearly state what exactly Chuck Schumer extracted from McConnell by shutting down the government?— David Chalian (@DavidChalian) January 22, 2018
Democrats surrender.— Binyamin Appelbaum (@BCAppelbaum) January 22, 2018
Not sure I understand the point of the last three days.
And the far-left base is p*ssed…
Shame on every single Democrat who said they would not do this, but caved and did it anyway.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) January 22, 2018
The Democrats appear to have caved. Rather than continuing to insist that DACA, opioids, and their other demands be addressed, it looks as though they have taken a deal to end the shutdown that relies upon a @SenateMajLdr promise. If so, they are fools. https://t.co/aBtXXooySR pic.twitter.com/XPhMI6umRu— Jamil Smith (@JamilSmith) January 22, 2018
