My favorite part is how all the right wingers here believe this is making the Democrats look bad, while over here in reality federal workers are suing Trump and not the Democrats.
It’s pretty apparent who’s fault this is, and who the public perceives is at fault.
But hey, keep screaming how this is on the Democrats. Reality grinds on regardless of your delusions.

A White House official told INSIDER that after a change to the internal model, the Trump administration now estimates the shutdown is taking 0.13 percentage points off of quarterly GDP every week. • The model change incorporated the negative effects for federal contractors. • The new White House estimate is much higher than the general Wall Street consensus that the shutdown is shaving 0.05 points off of quarterly GDP every week. The US economy is taking a hit from the partial shutdown of the federal government and even the White House thinks it may be even worse than originally estimated. After a tweak to the internal White House model, the administration now expects that the shutdown will deduct 0.13 percentage points from quarterly GDP for every week the closure persists, a White House official told INSIDER.
Trump is a menace

No anger from you over the Dems also refusing to budge on what amounts to 0.77% (77 cents out of a hundred dollar bill) of the country's annual spending while these poor folks and our economy are suffering? No? Hmm... Well now.
Try another pass.
