Joe Scarborough of “Morning Joe” is urging Democrats to “Shut it down.”
“To finish what I was saying, Democrats: Republicans own Washington, D.C. You should not give them a single vote in keeping the government running. That’s their job. This is their government. This is their government. This is their Congress.” Scarborough explained on MSNBC. “The American people said they wanted Republicans to run Washington, D.C. Let them run Washington, D.C. Don’t give them a single vote unless they give you a clean bill on DREAMers. If you do, let me say again, you are too weak, you are too spineless and too stupid when it comes to politics, and too cowardly to be given control of Congress in 2018.”
GOP leaders are already scrambling to avoid a government shutdown this week and many Democrats are refusing to back their new spending bill, since Republicans won’t allow a vote on the DREAM Act. Plenty of people, from politicians to celebrities are in support of a clean bill, and are urging Democrats to fight for one.
“Listen to the people in the streets. Listen to people that knock on doors, that are gonna be making phone calls for you in 2018.” Scarborough continued.
