Pence says government shutdown wasn’t a mistake, can’t guarantee there won’t be another one

2/6/19
Vice President Pence on Wednesday defended President Trump’s tactic of shutting down the federal government in a bid to gain leverage for border wall funding and said he could not guarantee that another closure will be averted next week. Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in funding for his long-promised border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border resulted in a 35-day partial shutdown that ended Jan. 25. Pence, who appeared on “CBS This Morning” after Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, said the White House agreed to reopen the government for three weeks after talking to “rank-and-file” members of the House and the Senate. Trump has called the ongoing congressional negotiations a “waste of time” and repeatedly raised the prospect of declaring a national emergency that could allow him to direct the military to build a border wall without congressional consent. Asked if he could guarantee that there won’t be another shutdown after Feb. 15, Pence said he could not.

I have no doubt that the majority of Americans would strongly disagree with VP Pence regarding the disastrous 35 day government shutdown. But then again, what else can a Trump toady say?

Pence has gone off the rails. He was always too religious for my tastes, but now he's like Rudy - a caricature of his previous self.

I like him better when he's a cardboard cutout.

He's right; now the American people can clearly see who is REFUSING TO NEGOTIATE....which the POTUS will cite when he declares a national emergency, and builds the wall.

It will be fun to watch Trump fellatrixes break down in tears when any national emergency he tries to declare about the need for the wall gets bitch-slapped by the courts.

Judging by all the white outfits worn in the House chamber last night by the new Congressional Democrat ladies, Trump is the one that got crushed last November 6th.

The national emergency by which he will claim dictatorial powers? Well, you'll be happy at least.
