Stellar job POTUS, thank you. Hold your ground, Sir. If they offer “nothing” and won’t cooperate — they too get nothing in return! The American People and their dutiful government employees shouldn’t be the blackmailed hostage of this charade. I’ve been on the receiving end of this no-pay government shutdown as a Vet. Shameful to hurt those that are on the frontlines ensuring our Country runs and is protected. Unlike or Congress elect that have omitted themselves from that difficulty. “Playing with House Money” ... at the expense of taxpayers and Federal employees.
