Going RINO hunting



We've already bagged three, just need one more so that Vice President Pence can't break a tie. That would force Trump to veto a bill and the veto would make the shutdown 100% Trump's.

"3 Republican senators want to reopen government without a border deal"
Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Ala.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) have called for the government to be reopened before more work is done on border security.

Murkowski: "We don't need to hold up these six other departments at the same time that we are resolving these very important security issues."
Collins: "I'm not saying their whole plan is a valid plan, but I see no reason why the bills that are ready to go and on which we've achieved an agreement should be held hostage to this debate over border security."
Gardner: "I think we should pass a continuing resolution to get the government back open. The Senate has done it last Congress, we should do it again today."

2. Regardless

The government will remain shut down.
And very few people will notice.
