Three weeks from now, the federal “shutdown” will resume unless President Trump and House Democrats negotiate a budget.
Unfortunately, if Vice President Mike Pence is to be believed, it’s going to take a herculean effort just to coax House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the table at all.

“The time has come for the Democrats to come to the table, bring their ideas, and we will secure our border and reopen the government,” Pence added.
