Open Thread: Government Shutdown Edition

UPDATE: At midnight last night (1/19/2018) the government shut down. This shutdown lies firmly at the feet of Mitch McConnell, the Republicans in Congress and 45. The Republicans are holding CHIP and DACA hostage in order to force Democrats into supporting a CR.

Sen. Doug Jones, Democrat: YES
Sen. Joe Donnelly, Democrat: YES
Sen. Claire McCaskill, Democrat: YES
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, Democrat: YES
Sen. Joe Manchin, Democrat: YES

The government has been funding incrementally (CR - Continuing Resolutions) for nearly a decade. A DECADE!
