    Will Republicans make the same mistake again with shutting down the Govt?

    “Let me make it clear: There will be no government shutdowns,” McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a victory-lap news conference the day after he won reelection and a Republican rout gave his party the Senate majority.

    On Thursday, the Senate adjourned for a 10-day break that will leave just a few workdays before the Feb. 27 deadline to secure funding for the Department of Homeland Security amid a smoldering fight over President Obama’s executive orders on immigration.

    GOP infighting grows over DHS funding | TheHill

    GOP infighting between the House and Senate is growing as Republicans work to prevent a partial shutdown of the Homeland Security Department at the end of the month.

    House conservatives on Thursday pointedly criticized Senate Republicans for saying a House-approved bill funding the agency and reversing President Obama’s executive actions on immigration was dead in the Senate.

    “If we're going to allow seven Democratic senators to decide what the agenda is of the House Republican conference, of the Senate Republican majority, then we might as well just give them the chairmanships, give them the leadership of the Senate,” Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho) said at an event held with the Heritage Foundation.
    He and other conservatives called for Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) to gut the Senate’s filibuster if necessary to move the House bill to President Obama. With Democrats objecting to the immigration language, Republicans in the Senate are far short of the 60 votes needed to overcome procedural hurdles.

    Senate Republicans quickly fired back at Labrador, arguing the suggestion was unrealistic.

    “We should change 200 years of precedent?” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told The Hill. “No. If you change it for one issue, then you change it forever.”
    "If you can't stand the way this place is, Take yourself to higher places!"
