the very people who caused this shutdown are first ones who should not be paid. Just like Union members who walk off the job. Congress has done the same thing. Proving they do not respect the American people nor do they WORK FOR US . They believe they know what's best. We have allowed them to run this country into ruin. We have elected a president that is helping get back up on our collective feet. We have allowed members of congress to act like children sitting on the floor of congress, while they fight for illegal aliens and ignore the needs of the American people. We were promised a border wall in 2006 by the very people who voted for for the Secure Fence act they now fight us to leave the borders on open. They should not be paid when they no longer work for the American people.
