On the government shutdown, Pelosi should go maximalist
That new House Democratic majority will have two basic options: (1) go accomodationist; or (2) go maximalist. I am here to write in support of option #(2).
To recap, before the government shutdown, the Senate had passed a stopgap measure by 100-0. When RW extremists got Trump’s ear, he (as usual) welched and refused to sign any bill that did not include funding for his border “wall.” The House GOP promptly passed a bill doing so, and there matters have stalled for the last 10 days.
