SNIP A sufficient number of Republican senators are poised to break with Trump, and band with the Democrats, to defy the president on policy. And not just any policy, but one that was the centerpiece of his campaign: building a border wall. On Thursday, the Senate is slated to vote on a resolution—already passed by the House—rejecting the national-emergency declaration that Trump invoked last month to tap billions of federal dollars for wall construction. Republican defections could number anywhere from a handful to the upper teens, White House officials estimate. ENDSNIP https://www.theatlantic.com/politic...op-defections-senate-over-border-wall/584830/ Today, it's time to put up or shut up.... Votes have consequences.. All should remember that this is not really a vote for or against the Idiot Wall... it's a vote to attempt to keep your own powers intact.... who wouldn't vote for that?? My favorite part of the day, regardless of the vote total, is thinking about poor Mitchy, having to bring something to the floor he knows will not go the way he wants it to... An extreme rarity in the Dark Ages of McConnellism (Official Definition - Vote on nothing I cannot win) 5 R's are on the record as planning to vote yes, but you know there are more who will as well (the 4 in the article plus Mike Lee UT) What's the final vote total on the resolution?? I'm going 59-41, meaning 12 R's will support it? Over? Under?
