Durbin can’t deny what the video proves. During the last shutdown they were decrying the same conduct they are now engaging in. Hypocrisy is how they operate. Diversion is SOP
Once again, Dick Durbin is presented with evidence that he and his partner in crime, Chuck Schumer, are liars solely intent on political gain at any cost, who couldn’t care less about the future of this nation other than facilitating its rapid destruction from within. Durbin chooses, in typical Democrat fashion, to ignore a difficult question nailing them and their duplicity and to simply talk around the unpleasant truth.
Clinton supporter and host George Stephanopoulos asks Durbin, “But is it right to hold the government hostage? You heard Marc Short cite Senator Schumer, here’s what Senator Schumer said back in 2013 during the last government shutdown.” Stephanopoulos then plays a clip of Schumer who made an inane comparison between a shutdown and a home invasion in which someone wants to negotiate the purchase price of the home.
Schumer said, “We could do the same thing on immigration. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say ‘we’re shutting down the government, we’re not going to raise the debt ceiling until you pass immigration reform,’ it would be governmental chaos.” It also would be pretty much exactly what they are now doing.
Stephanopoulos asks Durbin about their hypocrisy, saying, “So aren’t you all creating chaos now?” It’s a question the lying politician refuses to answer and is allowed to rephrase as something completely different in offering a non-responsive “response.”
Durbin went back to the worn out argument that has prompted President Trump to call for the end of the filibuster, stating that Republicans are in control of the government. They’re not.
As long as the filibuster is in place in the Senate and the Republican majority is less than 60%, nothing happens without Democrat votes and they are effectively in control of both the House and Senate, withholding support as a voting bloc which prevents legislation passed in the House from advancing out of the dysfunctional Senate.
Durbin says all they’ve asked for is a solution in a bi-partisan fashion. Bipartisanship means surrendering to their extortion, in this case, trading a vote, their constitutional obligation under the conditions of their employment and the oath they took, for an anti-American benefit to illegal alien squatters without protections for the American people.
Durbin never did answer the question. They never admit to being the scumbags we all see them to be. He attempts to wrap himself in the bipartisanship of his fellow globalist, RINO Lindsey Graham. Scumbags sometimes have an “R” after their name as well and bipartisan always means sticking it to the American people.
