Here is yet another shutdown-awareness fail, and this one is from the Senate minority whip, Sen. Dick Durbin.
No end in sight to the President’s government shutdown. He’s taken our government hostage over his outrageous demand for a $5 billion border wall that would be both wasteful and ineffective.

And what exactly are your proposals to secure the border, Mr. Durbin?
That’s what we thought.
Why again is the Democrat Senator from Illinois willing to keep the government shut down over $5 billion? If it’s about waste, why doesn’t he audit certain departments and argue his case about all of the waste taking place? https://t.co/2TK59hsBWq

Since when have Democrats been as concerned as they are at this moment about waste?
Did they even know the word waste existed until Trump began trying to get funding for a border wall?
