The right has log claimed that Dems don’t care who they hurt, they only care about political power.

Here are a few moments from when Congress was teetering on the brink of a shutdown that suggest there may be truth in that claim.

As we know from the result — the newspapers don’t have giant headlines with the ‘war declared’ font telling us that the government has been shut down — which means that any hopes the press had of blaming the ‘extreme MAGA’ GOP for a shutdown have been dashed. For now, at least.

But credit where it’s due, the Democrats tried.

Here is a vote where Dems wanted to call it a night despite still having hours of negotiating time still ahead of them. If you listen, you will hear more than a few ‘yea’ votes.

Here is the general lack of concern about the looming shutdown from Joe’s Press Secretary:

In past shutdowns, there has been unanimous votes in favor of a provision to pay active military. But when Ted Cruz proposed such a provision this time, it had a different reaction.

The libs not only wanted a shutdown — they were confident that the GOP would be blamed for it, so they were looking for ways to make it painful for Americans.
