The government is going to reopen because Democrats have caved on the shutdown:
To be clear, most Senate Democrats wound up voting to reopen the government. They did so after a deal was struck in which Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) was assured that the Senate would vote on some kind of immigration deal by Feb. 8 — and if they didn’t have a deal, there would be an up-or-down vote on DACA, the program protecting the children of illegal immigrants from deportation.
Do they not know that Republicans lie? Not occasionally, but all the time?
And when the GOP screws them over, are we going to have another shutdown? Or are the Democrats going to let them get away with it?
