Default possible impasse ending

CONGRESS by voice vote approves a cobbled pub-dem border biil...trump vetoes-by voice votes
congress overrides his veto
trump says not my fault
congressional members can say that wasn't my "yea" vote you heard

government stays open, border gets some security upgrades, and the executive and legislative branches move win-win-win and no losers

imo the middle east, china, and russia are where the real action is playing out

I don't think they can override a veto on voice votes.

Well, yes...…….except for the 24,000+ Americans murdered by Illegal Aliens since 1968....then reality hits close to home.

You're correct, a voice vote can NOT be used to override a presidential veto

Once again the OP displays his ignorance

You think the Senate is going along with a voice vote?

by bringing up the max beds allowed at the last minute it's clear Dems (Pelosi) are just fine with another shutdown given Trump got the blame last time. They are basically daring him to do it again as they feel this is a winning issue. Pubs will not support it this time and Pelosi knows that. She thinks any veto by Trump will be overruled and I think she's right. Hate to say it but she's got bigger ***** then Mitch

That would work great. Maybe Nancy can be the one who decides what the voice votes are.

Cut to 2:00

And literally, a million plus illiterate, non-English speaking, non-functional Central American, Mexican, third world country migrants flood into the US looking for free stuff.
