Sen. Chuck Schumer really blew it with this whole government shutdown thing. He seemed to really believe that shutting down the government to support illegal aliens instead of American citizens was a good idea. Maybe it seemed like a good idea in the liberal echo chamber of Washington. However, in the real world, it was a really bad idea.
The polls are showing that…
In the government shutdown blame game, congressional Republicans may be off the hook.
Americans think congressional Democrats and President Donald Trump are about equally responsible for the three-day government shutdown, which ended Monday night, according to an NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll. Thirty-nine percent of respondents blame Democrats most, while 38 percent think the president bears the most responsibility.
Only 18 percent of those surveyed blame Republican lawmakers most.
Schumer didn’t just blow it with the American people but he blew it within his own party.
In fact, check out who just stormed his home…
Dozens of illegal aliens surrounded Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) home in New York on Tuesday demanding that Congress pass legislation immediately to give millions of people in the United States illegally amnesty and a pathway to citizenship.
“We want a Clean Dream Act,” the crowd chanted.
“When do we want it?” they chanted.
“Now!” they chanted.

Guess who is probably behind this lovely demonstration?
Yup. George Soros.
The protest was organized by United We Dream, which receives funding from billionaire left wing activist George Soros.
Democrat politicians are mad at Schumer too.
California’s two Democratic senators could barely contain their anger after Chuck Schumer cut a deal with Mitch McConnell to reopen the government on Monday — and deal later with the 200,000 Dreamers in their state facing deportation.
“I’m disappointed with a conversation that suggests a false choice: You either fund the government or you take care of these … kids. We can do both,” Sen. Kamala Harris fumed. It would be “foolhardy” to trust McConnell, she said of the majority leader’s promise to take up an immigration bill in the coming weeks.
No Democratic senator suggested that Schumer’s leadership is under any threat after his agreement with McConnell to fund the government through Feb. 8. The deal included a pledge from McConnell to begin debating an immigration bill if no agreement has been reached on the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
But progressive senators were visibly miffed by what their leader had just done, even if they did not publicly go after him.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) repeated any question about the spending deal with the answer: “We’ll have a statement.” And asked whether Schumer’s standing has been hurt by the negotiation, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) replied: “I’m not going to get into that right now.”
Might wanna rethink things a little bit next time you try to shut down the government.
