Since the election of the Democrat Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the subsequent appointment of Nancy Pelosi to Speaker of the House, we have experienced constant gridlock and continue to suffer through the longest Government Shutdown in our history.
For over a month, Speaker Pelosi has continued to ignore Republican legislators and President Trump's call for a negotiation that would open government and pay our federal workers.
Republicans have come to the table with proposals that would pay federal workers while the shutdown continues. All but six Democrats voted against it. President Trump even offered a stay on DACA as part of the deal, an opportunity that Democrats asked for just last year.
