SCALISE: Democrats Are Using Unpaid Workers as Pawns

Per Congressman Steve Scalise’s Facebook page:

Today House Democrats for the third time voted AGAINST paying federal workers as negotiations continue. I asked the House Democrat Majority Leader a simple question: how can Democrats claim to support workers when they refuse to pay them and instead use them as political pawns?

From the day President Trump took office, Democrats have vowed to oppose him at every turn in an effort to appease their radical-left base, putting the politics of obstruction over the security of our country.

There’s been no better example of that than the current partial government shutdown.

Just when you think the vitriol and hatred spewed by the left was over, you have someone like this guy that crawls out of his hole to bring it to a whole new level. 

To be fair, this clown has been fired from his position as Technology Chairman of the Nebraska Democrat Party. However, Phil Montag was caught on audio stating he was thankful for Steve Scalise's shooting last week because of his stance of healthcare.  

Keep it classy Dems. You're only helping the GOP get more members into elected office.

The following was issued from Attorney General Jeff Landry's office today regarding the assassination attempt on Rep. Steve Scalise this morning: 

 "My thoughts and prayers are with Majority Whip Congressman Steve Scalise as he has surgery and faces what will likely be months of recovery following the events that took place early this morning. Steve and I are former colleagues and great friends, having just had dinner earlier this week. He is an incredible public servant who not only serves our country in a leadership role in Congress, but also proudly represents the State of Louisiana.

Additionally, I remain in prayer for the others who were shot. Though this situation is fluid, we have already heard of many acts of bravery in the midst of this tragedy. Like always, law enforcement officials were quick to act, risking their lives to protect others. Having served in Congress, I know firsthand what the Capitol Police did daily to keep the members of Congress safe. We are grateful for the swift actions that undoubtedly saved this event from being more heartbreaking."

-Attorney General Jeff Landry

Scalise Shooter Was a Radical Progressive

As most of America is already aware, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, House Majority Whip, was shot during a practice for the annual Congressional Baseball Game, a charity event between Republican and Democrat members of Congress.  Scalise was shot in the hip, has been operated on and seems to be in stable condition at this time.

The shooter has been determined to be James T. Hodgkinson of Illinois, who has since perished in gunfire following the incident.  Hodgkinson has had a history of making anti-Trump statements, once calling the President an "asshole" and stating that the Democrats should work to stop any of Trump's efforts in Washington.

This comes on the heels on a history of anti-GOP statements that include violence, such as the severed head being held by Kathy Griffin and the recent assassination scene of President Trump in a New York play
