If you needed more proof that Democrats are responsible for the government shutdown this is it.
Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw reported on Twitter that Republicans had a plan to pay federal workers during the shutdown.
But that proposal did not pass because all but 6 Democrats voted against it.
“Big deal that never got reported:
“Last week, House GOP voted to pay federal employees their 1st paycheck of 2019, despite shutdown. Only 6 Dems voted with us. It failed.
“Dem priority is not paying workers or opening gov’t. It is opposing Trump,” he said.

It is astounding that the mainstream media did not report that.
They allow Democrats to come on television daily and wring their hands and denounce the shutdown.
They feign outrage over the fact that federal workers are not getting paid.
But when they had the chance to give those workers their pay they said no.
And they did it because they want to stick it to President Donald trump, The Resurgent reported.
Representative Crenshaw has been calling for bi-partisan action to end the stalemate on the Continuing Resolution to fund the government. Apparently, bi-partisan action is not even allowed to end the financial pain the shutdown is causing federal employees and their families.
This can only mean the Democrats want to cause maximum disruption to individuals in order to own Trump. If this does not demonstrate the complete political nature of the Democrats strategy to prevent the President from any progress on the border, I don’t know what will.
As the past week has highlighted that in order to remain informed and understand what the facts are in almost any story, voters will have to find independent sources. Thank goodness we have people in government like Representative Crenshaw who are willing to hold their colleagues accountable to the public.
Every day federal employees remain unpaid from here until the end of the shutdown lies solely on the shoulders of the Democrats. Let’s ensure that burden is one that begins to feel very heavy.
