RT @CitizenCohn: Can't be said enough -- the underlying question here is what Trump and Republicans intend to do about the Dreamers. 
This all points to why the Dems aren’t really a party like the GOP but a coalition. Dems pocketed the CHIP extension. But the Dem coalition partner that’s ascendant right now doesn’t really care about that. So it doesn’t see the recent shutdown as any kind of victory… 
RT @sahilkapur: The Democratic base is mad their party caved without a Dreamer deal and will pressure them not to give in next time…
I’m still waiting to hear how a shutdown would get Ryan to capitulate. “He'd feel the pressure to negotiate” is not an answer.
