The House GOP voted to fund the entire government except the ACA. The Democrats in the Senate and the President refused to go along. A majority of the populace, according to every poll I am aware of, blame the Republicans more than the Democrats. Now as the Republicans thrash around trying to come up with anything that will reverse the decline in opinions concerning them, they propose to fund the parts of the government they like, one part at a time. Needless to say, there is absolutely no functional difference between their first proposal and what they are now trying to do. Yet they expect to fool enough of the public by this feint to help their status because they, after all, in this scenario the serious people working at their jobs. I consider it unlikely that it will do any such thing since it’s just more of the same and that hasn’t worked out very well for them yet.
