We live in the United States of America. There are a lot of people who fought and died to protect and defend our way of life. People in Congress and the President should realize there are much greater issues at hand then closing the government and refusing to pay government workers.
What about the children of the workers. How do you think they feel? What kind of example are you setting for the children to not be paid for the work that was done?
Unfortunately, the people who are not being paid for the work they are doing have nothing to do with building a wall at the border, between Mexico and the United States.
To resolve an issue, you have to determine the root cause of the issue. Right now, we actually have two issues.
One issue is that government workers are not getting paid, and experiencing serious hardship, financially and emotionally. The second issue is the President of the United States wants to build a wall to prevent people from bypassing the legal entry points along our border.
All lives matter. Government workers should not be held hostage or treated like slaves, for ANY reason. Separate the issues, reopen the government, pay the government workers, and find a way to better secure all of our borders. How about the legal ports of entry? How about the internet? We all want border control. All around, not just between USA and Mexico.
All lives matter.
Pick a dream…and GO FOR IT!
I wish you all the best of luck.
