They approved what, $40 Billion or near to it, for border security in the past. That included building barriers.

You all know why they're crying about 5.

They better wrap it up soon, because they'll have to summon the energy to maintain a character assassination campaign against the next female SCOTUS pick.

BREAKING: President Trump says that he's HOLDING OFF on declaring a National Emergency at the moment.
www.mercurynews.com...

Maybe he senses the mood of the country turning against Pelosi and Schumer.

Word is getting around how Schumer and Pelosi have been 100% for border barriers...for years. Right up until President Trump wanted to build upon the barriers Schumer and Pelosi put there, between 2007 and 2013.

Maybe they can find temporary work as experimental pharmaceutical testers, cess pool pump truck maintenance, or chicken sexer industries... you know, jobs they're qualified for. I'm sitting here hoping the shutdown lasts long enough to starve all the TSA agents (and IRS while we're at it) out of their careers entirely.

CNN just said their cars are being repossessed.


Of course CNN would say that, they are assholes.
Even if you were leasing a damn Ferrari or Rolls Royce, they wouldn’t come get it that fast.
Same with houses....it takes time, 3-6 months could go by.

Sorry for the news but they would get their backpay without a new law. They are setting something up.

Ummm...why the hell should they get back pay if they’re not working and are furloughed...?

Let them collect unemployment like any other working stiff...at the same rate as the private sector...

Effing corrupt embezzlers...the lot of them...

For some reason Chuck and Nancy act like they are the same as the president and they are not. They work for him and not the other way around. There is no reason for Trump to back down any further.




Uh, I'm pretty sure when the founders were constructing separation of powers it expressly stated that no, they do not in fact work for him.

I'm flying out for business on Monday.

Should I tip them before or after they grope my penis?

Gee , Imagine that . Getting Paid to do Absolutely Nothing ... Only in America ................


I'm going to guess that you have never been on active military. When I was and this type of thing would happen. We had to come in and work a full day just as if we were getting paid. We were threatened with legal punishments if we didn't comply.


Probably because first off, you were actually government property at the time.

Thus the legal punishments if you don't show up.

Read the damn thing before you sign it!!!!

Secondly, you got paid... your date of pay was just delayed.

CNN is an Anti-America Terrorist organization. The fact that they're seen in 256 countries is what makes those hate-mongers so dangerous to our nation.

Here we go. I said this in a few earlier threads. The people will be paid.




The Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019 would ensure that government workers impacted by it and by any future shutdowns can at least get back pay. The Senate first passed the bill with a bipartisan voice vote late Thursday. The House took up the legislation the next morning before passing it 411 to 7.

Of course there will still be those who complain that they are not getting paid but what we are seeing is true government in action instead of everyone patting themselves on the back and getting their pork bills funded one more year in an appropriations bill.

This is good news though and one more thing that those who are affected will need to worry about.


I wonder who the 7 are that voted against it. Even on unanimously good, no brainer legislation like this that everyone can agree with, you've always got a handful of no votes. Who are these people and what is their reasoning?!
