Republican’s have been scrambling to get enough votes to keep the government open past Friday. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell were planning on blaming the Democrats for the pending shutdown but voters were not buying their logic since Republicans control every branch of the government. Mitch McConnell in a moment of brilliance decided to blame Betty Sloan of Detroit Michigan for failing to pass a budget that Donald Trump would sign. Betty, a former office manager for a small plumbing contractor found out the bad news late this afternoon. She was devastated and said,” I feel terrible, my husband just passed away and how will I explain to my grandchildren that I couldn’t pass a short term spending bill.” Mitch and Paul shook their heads and indicated Betty will have to deal with voters rage if the government shuts down.
