For a month now, we’ve listened to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer place the blame for the partial federal shutdown squarely at the feet of President Trump. The Frick and Frack of Capitol Hill dug their heels in and refused to budge, despite all their pontificating about how worried they are about our furloughed federal employees. But there is trouble in Democratic paradise. Schumer has agreed with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold “competing votes Thursday on President Trump’s proposal to spend $5.7 billion on a border wall and on a Democratic bill that would fund the government through Feb. 8 without a wall.” Not only is this the first time the Senate has acted since the shutdown began but it shows a break of sorts between Pelosi and Schumer. Maybe there is reason to hope after all.
