Did you know a government shutdown effects roughly 800,000 people who will be furloughed or forced to work without pay? Sadly the timing of the situation couldn’t be worse being so close to the holidays when folks are spending more money than usual. If they’re not getting paid, how do they pay their bills and credit cards? Apparently keeping Americans working and productive is less important than holding out for a useless border wall. Keeping $$ in people’s pockets is less important than a $5 billion dollar temper tantrum. The VillageRuckus has our collective fingers crossed the House stays strong and continues to black list this Wall. Trump is nothing more than a bully, with no regard for the the everyday American as he holds their jobs and paychecks hostage. And as usual Trump is lightning quick to place the blame on the Democrats, when only a few days ago said that he would gladly take responsibility for the shutdown if it means border security. Trump should get an electric shock every time he lies, then may he may see the many errors of his ways.
