Trump reopens government without wall

President Trump said Friday that he will support a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the partial government shutdown that has dragged on for more than a month – despite a day earlier saying Republicans would not “cave” on his demands for funding for a wall on the southern border.

“I am very proud to announce we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government,” he said to applause from gathered Cabinet members.

He said the deal would keep the government open for three weeks until Feb. 15 and that a bill would go before the Senate immediately. He made reference to his previous threats to declare a national emergency, calling it a “very powerful weapon,” but saying he didn’t want to use it.

<The deal appeared to include no money for a wall or steel barrier, but he said he hoped negotiations would continue to come to an agreement on wall funding.

Sort of a shame. The last food-stamps were just handed out and fourty-something million people at the verge of being without bread would most likely have caused interesting movement.

Hm, true. I'm just an a hopeless optimist.
They'd probably just escalate their internal shouting and bitter finger-pointing while licking boots for crumbs of bread. It wouldn't have been hunger and suffering deep and wide enough to encourage protests and looting.

Honestly this. They don't care about Flint, a huge swathe of the country just worked over a month without pay or complaint, there is effectively zero revolutionary potential in the USA, such a fucking disappointment.

Do you think anyone saw any revolutionary potential in Russia in 1916? Don't be such a downer.

Colton Miller

cheka'd. Burgers are why we have Bologna in Brasil destroying the rainforests for muh mcdonalds. And actually yea, I bet people did see the potential considering WW1. Americans have no potential to take mass action for enlightened ideals but they will for sports or something closer to their everyday lives (like burgers or gasoline)

I don't think this is a failure on the part of Trump. It will take months for the federal workers to work through the backlog created by the shutdown.
Work tends to compound like interest, so a month of back work could take 3 months just to undo all the chaos and start on the actual backlog if not more.
All this start and studdering will continue to erode the welfare state and worker leverage. Except it will do it in a "slowly boil the frog way" where the effects will be so slow that the public will forget that their decline in quality of life is related to the government welfare state being dicked with, and the right wing will swoop in and convince them it is the fault of the ethnic minority of the week. They've been doing this since the start of the "Southern Strategy" and white burgers fall for it everytime.

I mean that is essentially what Obama did. America will slowly devolve into a classical empire with an "elected" god emperor at the helm supported by a congress that is filled with american aristocrats.

yeah but I meant to say that how the fuck is it even an emergency if you just said that you are going to delay declaring it an emergency for another month. It's like if an earthquake happens and they put off dealing with it for a few weeks.

To be fair, the flight attendants union (which has 50,000 members) was about to organize a national wildcat strike, which is really the straw that broke the camel's back. Not something I would have ever expected in 2019 America. I know some teachers associations did a wildcat strike in Kentucky not too long ago, but they have considerably fewer members than 50,000.

If I see this one more time I'm gonna strangle one of you morons. That you think this is somehow a uniquely American phenomenon is, ironically, just a product of your US-centric worldview. People all over the world have slaved over meager subsistence wages for decades and we have, nonetheless, only seen more inaction and subservience from all of them. Read a book, educate yourself on the world outside of NA and Europe.

Note that I actually think trying to calculate countries by their revolutionary potential is largely a waste a time. Once a country gets to the point where "socialism" becomes a well-known word, at least in the major cities, it's anyone's guess where it could go in a time of crisis. I don't think any reasonable socialist in 1914, if we were to ask them what major power they thought would be the world's lone socialist nation in a few years, would answer Russia.

Matthew Jenkins

THere's a letter in the 1880s where he says Russia has the basis for socialism but not for proletarian revolution.
Tbf the rapid industrialisation of the 1880s onwards was pretty unprecedented in Europe up until that point.

Its now official. Trump presidency was a flop. He's basically re-enacting Obama yet conservatives swear up and down the aisle that he's "carrying out God's Plan" and Obama is still the Antichrist. "Make America Great Again" is now the bane of Reagan.

With average yearly burger salary of 44,624 $, would week-long strike costed government just a little less than 43 milions $ or ~37 milions €. That's insignificant sum for 50-times smaller economies.

To be fair, the right don't want the wall either. It would literally kill off the steady stream of cheap labor the republican businesses enjoy, as well as the democratic businesses.
The reason our medical industry is in trouble is because illegals create cost shifting. They go to the ER, get treated with about $10,000 of medical care, then disappear when the bill comes to get paid. the cost is then shifted to the paying customers, which is why an ER bill is $10,000 in the first place. Then the insurance companies knock down the bill to half that or less, and pocket the difference.

Holy shit this is the most retarded hot take I've ever seen yet. Yeah, like a hospital is just going to let an illegal leave without paying or without checking to see if they have insurance first lmfao.

This shit is boomer-tier nonsense. Citizens probably owe more money to ERs than non-citizens. Anyways it doesn't really matter since healthcare should be free for all who need it. This is kind of like how /pol/ often blames immigrants for housing costs. It's less of an argument and more like a desire, or need. Like they need for someone other than the bosses/landlords (i.e. their parents) to be at fault.
