The Democrats caved to pressure and, at this moment, they are taking a vote on the Senate floor to end the embarrassing government shutdown. The Democrats refused to approve President Donald Trump's budget on Friday, leading to a government shutdown at midnight Friday.
A government shutdown costs taxpayers $6 billion a week.
On Monday, the Senate reached the 60 votes necessary to end the shutdown that was orchestrated by New York Senator Chuck Schumer, who tied Friday's vote to the DACA, aka Dreamer amnesty.
Schumer and the Democrats argued for special favors for illegal immigrants, and they didn't care if Americans went without Jobs or paychecks.
"Never before in American history has a major political party put the interests of lawbreaking foreign nationals ahead of the interests of law abiding Americans," writes Thehill.com.
The Democrats heard from their angry constituents who reminded them that they would speak at the polls during the midterm elections. Schumer was singled out for criticism for his anti-American stance.
"Democrats have shut down our government in the interests of their far left base. They don’t want to do it but are powerless!," President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday morning.
Trump added: "End the Democrats Obstruction!"
The president echoed Americans who are tired of Schumer and the Democrats throwing tantrums over their candidate losing the election in 2016.
"The Schumer shutdown shows us not only what the Democrats believe but what they are capable of doing.
And why they cannot be allowed to take control of Congress in November."
