Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 25, 2018

Senate Democrats are willing to drop their demand that relief for Dreamers be tied to any long-term budget agreement -- a potential boost for spending talks, but one that could face opposition from their House counterparts. The shift comes in response to the deal struck between Senate leaders Monday to reopen the government and begin debate on an immigration bill next month. Meanwhile, budget negotiators are expressing optimism that a two-year agreement to lift stiff caps on defense and domestic spending is increasingly within reach.

No. this is not on the dems. votes have consequences, and here we are. When liberals had the authority given by the voters, then they protected the dreamers. Now they don't. Blame yourself.

Lol, nothing is ever the Dems' fault even if it is. This is the consequence of "everyone gets a trophy".

So The Party of Fiscal Responsibility isn't satisfied with just adding $1.5 Trillion to the debt, they're now removing spending caps as well?

What's the over/under on how many months until they're surprised these deficits will force them---force them, I tell you---to cut Medicare and Social Security?

Uh Huh, please tell us the last time Republicans actually took responsibility for an issue.

#5 Most likely the same time Democrats did. Strange to see the senate actually maybe getting something done. And I'm referring to both sides of the isle.

#6; WTF are you on about ---------? Always drawing false equivalencies like ben shapiro. When did the dems last cause an issue like the GOP? Hasn't happened in decades so your point is totally moot.

Obama takes responsibility for the United States making serious mistakes in the past.

GOP: "Obama on an apology tour! Boo!"

Fishy, shutting up is a good look for you.

Just to remind everyone, DACA could be fixed with a stroke of Trump's pen. DACA was fine until he interfered with it. The deportation of thousands of young people whose only crime was to be brought here as children, is directly on Trump. No one else. These deportations should be referred to as the Trump deportations. Totally unnecessary and totally immoral just to please the racist parts of his base. He doesn't care because he is absolutely a sociopath who never feels guilt about anything he does. He's incapable of it.

DACA exceeds the authority of the Executive branch. It's a piece of legislation and presidents do not have the power to legislate. It will most likely get fixed by congress since both sides seem eager for a deal on it.

All immigration legislation to date is a farce. The only way it can be enforced is on employers and that enforcement is so erratic as to be meaningless.

Because large employers are part of their "donor class". They'll never agree to enforce significant sanctions against them.
