    Democrats head to broad way show during the Shutdown....

    Dozens of Congressional Democrats flocked to Puerto Rico on Friday to watch the opening weekend of Hamilton amid the ongoing government shutdown, in a trip that organizers hope will allow them to lobby for additional federal funding to the impoverished island.

    According to Luis Miranda, a Democratic consultant and the father of Hamilton director Lin-Manuel Miranda, the trip will provide an opportunity for members of Congress, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, to see the need for further investment to Puerto Rico, with the island recovering from the impact of the 2017 hurricane that devastated large swathes of its infrastructure.

    “They’ll get to experience firsthand the needs of the island, so that they go back and sort of fight (President) Trump and the Republicans,” he said in an interview with CBS News.

    Nice to see our Democrat friends in congress being able to go on vacation in a time like this.

    The House passed a bill to reopen the government. It's all on McConnell now.

    Ah, yes... The F*** America! Bill -- passed because they knew it would never be signed.

    How dare they pass legislation to reopen the government.

    The gall of them. They don't care about this country at all.

    They're supposed to be proud of this. What happened?

    They went down there to stock up on bottled water. Seems we sent way too many stockpiles of it down there.

    So, the actual story of this thread is Democrats are visiting a part of the United States which is in need of attention, while Republicans are refusing to reopen government.

    Thanks for reporting. It's nice to have Puerto Rico back in the news.

    Maybe a few on here can convince them to take a Dutch airliner from Holland to Malaysia.
