Here is Putin's puppet calling for a government shutdown. Update!

Courtesy of CNN: 

The comment, which came during a White House meeting on the violent MS-13 gang, was not well received in the room. Rep. Barbara Comstock, a Virginia Republican who represents a district with thousands of federal workers, confronted Trump about the remark and urged him to avoid another government shutdown. 

"If we don't change it, let's have a shutdown," Trump said of the nation's immigration laws. "We'll do a shutdown and it's worth it for our country. I'd love to see a shutdown if we don't get this stuff taken care of."

He added: "If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety, and unrelated but still related, they don't want to take care of our military, then shut it down. We'll go with another shutdown." 

The government will run out of funding Thursday if negotiators can't strike a deal.

Just to remind you, NO president has ever called for a government shutdown before.

The guy in the White House is supposed to make sure that the government continues to run smoothly, not turn off like a light switch.

Do you want to know who DOES want to see a dysfunctional American government?

You got it.

Update: When I wrote this post it did not appear that there was a budget deal on the horizon.

While I was at the gym that seems to have changed.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has announced a deal with Senate Democrats to fund the government and set spending levels for defense and nondefense programs over the next two years. 

The legislation would avert a government shutdown on Friday, when federal funding is due to expire, and boost defense and nondefense programs. 

It also lifts the debt ceiling to March 2019, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hailed as a decision that would move Congress away from "crisis-to-crisis budgeting." 

The deal is backed by McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), and will almost certainly be cleared as part of a stopgap funding measure by the Senate before a Feb. 8 deadline to prevent a shutdown.

There are also reports that the House is on board with this as well, which would seem to indicate that it is a done deal. 

Sadly it appears they kicked the DACA can down the road, which is unfortunate, but it looks like Trump has been denied both his wall and the government shutdown that he appeared to be drooling over.
