@lnxw48a1 I disagree. Trump kicked it off with an unforced error. He surprised HIS own congressional leaders (i.e., the Senate) in December when he announced he wouldn't sign their bills. They couldn't cobble together a bill fast enough before the House changed hands. They were only stopgap funding bills, but his refusal to sign kicked it off. The shutdown is because he changed his mind at the last minute and yanked the rug out from under his own party. https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/12/20/government-shutdown-house-senate-expect-pass-funding-bill-donald-trump-white-house-mitch-mcconnell/2368441002/
As unlikely as it is with *this* Congress, veto override votes are an option they have under the Constitution.
McConnell has been historically obstructionist already in refusing to act on Garrick's nomination to the Supreme Court by Obama[-the Kavanaugh trauma was in part his fault, and he shouldn't be getting a pass for his part in this, too.
