Why Democrats probably won’t shut down the government again | Vox


Democrats are betting they’ve found a road out of Shutdown Valley, thanks to a commitment they secured from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The Democratic thinking seems to be this: They have a pledge from McConnell to initiate an immigration debate in the coming days, one they believe will lead to the Senate passing some kind of bipartisan legislation.
