He’s waiting for legislation that Trump will sign. I let him know that the Senate can override his veto, and asked him to consider the hundreds of thousands of Americans going w/o pay. #arpx pic.twitter.com/YDmQ3ExkrX

On Twitter last night Ethan Williams, a Young Democrat, said he drove to Gillett and paid $25 to attend the annual Coon Supper so he could ask Sen. Tom Cotton to reopen the government. Sorry, Cotton seems to have said. Trump calls the shots.
Think for a minute about government by and for Trump. Think if he can add a condition to anything that passes through Congress. Consider that the whole of government and American life can be controlled by a single issue of importance to a single despot. That’s where we are. And none of the Arkansas Republicans in Congress have the backbone to resist.
BTW: Williams is worth a follow on Twitter. Particularly if you are not a fan of Republican Rep. Rick Crawford.
