Yes, that a bill has to be proposed to state the obvious is the precise problem. Since February is looming , i would hate to see the last fiasco of a shutdown rear its little head again. May I repeat billions of dollars lost, workers and familues left vulnerable along with our national security. If anything was learned from the government shutdown, I hope people finally realize that a wall is not in the best interest of our security. A government shutdown is. The American people are not pawns and the one with eyes to see know exactly what is going on and will continue to fight for our democracy until those that do not see are enlightened.
