A simple question….
I recently wrote to my Senators about my disappointment in their (lack of) strategy during the recent short government shutdown. I thought they blew it for a number of reasons. In any case, I wrote to them (and our House representative) again this morning with the following simple question to use during the immigration negotiations……
I recently wrote you regarding the lack of a coherent Democratic strategy for the shutdown. I just wanted to offer a simple suggestion:
In every interview and every negotiation where “the wall” is put forward, the automatic democratic response should be “we will fund the wall when the president reveals how Mexico will pay for it”. That was the president’s promise to the American people and he should be held accountable for that in any negotiation regarding this subject.
Thank you for your consideration,
Since we are mired in the era of soundbite politics and alternate facts, lets get some details on one of the signature promises of this administration.
