See if you can keep up. Here is Democrat Representative Steny Hoyer trying to have it both ways (being deceptive or just a moron). He wants to keep the government open and stay and work. On the getting a continuing resolution:
Hoyer: “I believe we ought to stay here and do our work”
Hoyer: “And I believe we ought to vote to do so. And therefore I will vote, No”
Interrupted by Speaker: “Does the gentlemen have a motion?”
Hoyer: “I have a motion… and that motion is the House do now adjourn.”
Dem shutdown messaging is so convoluted they're contradicting themselves in real-time:
Hoyer just now: "I believe we should stay here and do our work."
"What is your motion?"
Hoyer: I motion to adjourn. pic.twitter.com/Vcs22PQ7dz

Man, I do not know how anyone with a microbe of self-respect votes Democrat. It’s like tattooing “I’m with stupid” on your neck with an arrow pointing up.
* Note: The government is never shutdown, even when people say it is. Don’t fall for it.
