Democrats put party before people -- Roger Johnson

January 30, 2019

So the Democrats “won” their 35-day childish “stare down” with President Donald Trump.

Senate Minority Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., boasted, “The president thought he could crack Democrats and he didn’t, and I hope it’s a lesson for him.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., chimed in, “Our unity is our power. And that is what maybe the president underestimated.”


When I read and hear remarks such as these, it is abundantly clear to me that the “battle of wills” had absolutely nothing to do with building a wall (which was not even mentioned in their smug remarks). It was all about a political power struggle -- nothing more, nothing less.

No concern for the thousands of U.S. lives disrupted, the chaos created, the economy hurt and havoc caused by their childish spats, just a pathetic public display of “we’ll show him.”

Once again, this is proof that the politicians care little about the people they claim they represent. It’s party over people, always.
