  • My definition of DACA
  • I see my definition of DACA is now spreading across the internet. BTW, A definition that I've been using since I first heard of DACA, maybe over a year or more ago. Another spin off is Democrats Against Children of America.

  • I'm confussed
  • Help me out here. The Senate is controlled by Republicans yet the Democrats can shut down the Government. How is that possible? Just change the senate rules like Harry Reid did to suit what ever bill he wanted passed. Get rid of DACA = meaning Democrats Against Citizens of America. This deplorable voter has had enough.

  • It's because though republicans own 51 seats, they need 60 votes to be effective. That means they needed 9 Democrats to think and act correctly on this instead of siding with Feinstein and being stupid. Piggybacking the GD DACA crap to the budget is part of their agenda to upset Trump. He ain't gonna budge, and they'll probably get a temporary open for business vote this week, but by Feb 8 will need to agree on a plan. Dems shut down the gubment in 2013 too over Owebamacare. I don't think any senator or congressman is going to be hurt by missing paycheck, but, as usual, it is the lowly American grunt who will. Trump has ensured no military person will go without a paycheck and SS and Medicare recipients won't be penalized. The dems are also doing this on the 1 year anniversary of President Trumps tenure-just to spite him. This will most likely favor more Republican votes in 2018.

  • Re: I'm confussed
  • Not true.

    "Non-essential" Government workers will not be paid but senators and congresspersons will be paid as usual.(Why do we have non-essential government workers?)

    Something else that needs to be changed.

  • Re: I'm confussed
  • Ditto on the Non Essentials. Wouldn't it be grand if The Donald could execute an Executive Order to suspend pay to Congress and the House ? 5 will get you 10 that they would reach a solution post haste. SoS.

  • While they are at it, I would like to see every individual elected person's travel expenses. Not a lump sum of all, that would be hiding abuse. Also, how many staff each are allowed and are paid for by the US Government and how many are paid for by the respective state governments. Give them all a horse (no buggy) and 5 illegals.

  • Re: I'm confussed
  • I used google to get a definition of DACA. WOW! It is one huge governmental SNAFU that should have never happened! Remember Janet Napolitano? It is too long and too complicated to define in this forum. Please, look it up and be overwhelmed.

  • Re: I'm confussed
  • Janet Napolitano was an absolute disaster for the American People.

  • Re: I'm confussed
  • The problem is that we have some rinos, republican(s) in name only. That leaves the Republicans short by one or more votes. Also, the 60 vote requirement is to prevent a Filibuster. This deplorable thanks you for a real definition of DACA. I was trying to think of another meaning.

  • That is a tongue twister that I've had to practice, just like "turd world countries".
