Pelosi cranks up shutdown pressure on Trump, GOP
By Mike Lillis and Scott Wong - 01/08/19 06:00 AM EST

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Democrats are ramping up pressure on President Trump and Republicans to open the government amid a prolonged impasse over border wall funding that shows no signs of abating.

Sensing a winning hand, Democrats this week will repackage a handful of uncontroversial bills funding a number of shuttered agencies — excluding Homeland Security, which covers the proposed wall — and send them off to the Senate one by one, forcing GOP leaders to explain their promised inaction on measures they supported just weeks ago.

“I have said over and over again, we need to reopen the government and then have a serious discussion about border security,” Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, said Monday in an interview with New York Public Radio.

The rats don't 'sense' a winning hand. They believe they and their media toads can create the impression they are holding a winning hand.

Only the Commie douchebags at The Hill think the Rats have a winning hand on the eve of the President announcing a State of Emergency and taking the ball away from them and going home.
