This falls into the WTF category
Senate Democrats look poised to relinquish significant leverage -- the threat of withholding government funding -- well into the next Congress.
After Obama was elected the republicans said that they would do everything in their power to make him a one term president. There was no bipartisanship during his entire tenure.
"After months of legislative logjams, this budget deal is a genuine breakthrough," said Chuck Schumer (D-NY) from the Senate floor. "After months of fiscal brinkmanship, this budget deal is the real first sprout of bipartisanship, and it should break the long cycle of spending crises that have snarled this Congress and hampered the middle class."
But what about the Resistance? Haven't the democrats spent the last year telling us how Trump can't be trusted?
It would also deprive Senate Democrats of a tool they could use to stymie the Trump administration, which has been plagued by repeated accusations of Executive Branch abuses, including unprecedented nepotism and conflicts of interest, and obstruction of justice in the FBI inquiry into alleged election meddling in 2016. Republicans have the majority in both houses of Congress, but need Senate Democrats to guarantee that budget legislation won't be filibustered.
So is it now time to give up on the democrats?
