House Democrats Threaten To Shut Down Government If Health Care Bill Moves Forward

Democrats only know how to protest and issue threats.

The desperate party wants to block a vote on the Republican health care plan this week and they are using the short-term spending bill as leverage.

Democrats are promising not to vote for the spending bill that is needed to keep the government operating if Republicans vote on the new health care bill.

From The Hill:

House Democrats will oppose a short-term spending bill if Republican leaders attempt to expedite an ObamaCare repeal bill this week, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) warned Thursday.

Hoyer, the Democratic whip, spoke with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) Thursday morning to warn him of the Democrats’ position.

The threat is significant because GOP leaders will likely need Democratic votes to pass a short-term spending bill in the face of opposition from conservatives historically opposed to government funding bills.

As previously discussed, today’s Democrat Party is a protest party devoid of ideas and reputable politicians.

Accordingly, it’s not surprising the recent ABC News/Washington Post poll found that the number of Americans that feel Democrats are out of touch with their concerns is up almost 20 percent since 2014.
