You Only have to Blame the So Called " Democrat Leadership " for that . Their Party is a Freakin' Insult to All Americans Right Now ........


An insult to at least one Canadian, too.

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.

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.



The federal workers could really show trump, and quit!
They are hard working, highly trained professionals. No doubt they could be pulling 6 figure salaries in the private sector in no time.
Then we could dispense with much of the federal gov entirely, and eliminate this from being an issue in the future!

Everybody wins

Sounds like someone is panicking over fear that they won't get their welfare check if the shutdown lasts much longer.

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



You're a menace!!!

Just kidding, you only rise to the level of occasional nuisance. Carry on... and btw the people that are not getting paid are. Just a bit late. Given how overpaid much of the federal workers are they should probably have a little stash to get them through.

Why do you think he won't?
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fire dead wood, DS, hostile, non-essential employees within a bloated bureaucracy?
It's almost impossible to get rid of them otherwise.

Ah. TY for clarifying.

Rules dictate that those being fired under RIF must be given 60 days notice.
Watch them go running to whine to Pelosi when those notices go out in a few days.

After 30 days of furlough, they can be fired at any time.
