Just three days away from a possible government shutdown, and yet, things feel as intractable as ever in Washington.
There's no deal on DACA or immigration, or border security — and President Trump tweeted on Tuesday: "The Democrats want to shut down the Government over Amnesty for all and Border Security."
But Democrats say it's the GOP that holds all the cards, because the Republicans hold the House, Senate,and White House.
