It’s past time to tell Queen Nancy to stop taking time off and do her job or quit.

I would focus on the people who are suffering under this self admitted Trump shutdown.

Your democrat talking point does nothing to solve the problem just like Nancy does nothing to solve the problem. The Republicans asked and voted for at least paying those workers during the shutdown. The D’s voted it down. Now who doesn’t care about the workers? I’ll give you a hit, the name begins with an N and ends with y.

The democrats are the ones fighting for a larger issue and that is you DON’T accept blackmail or hostage taking.

What happens when Trump, this ignorant heartless, inhumane barbarian does this again, and again, and again? Where does it stop? If you don’t have the vote’s you cant abuse your power and shutdown the government and be rewarded.

Government by hostage and blackmail cannot be

Anyway, this thread is about the dangerous state of the Air traffic controllers.


link



Unpaid air traffic controllers are waiting tables and driving for Uber in the time left over from their 10-hour shifts tracking the position and speed of aircraft to prevent collisions. These are the federal employees who each day see to the safety of millions of airborne passengers. And they are nearing a breaking point amid the longest government shutdown in history, according to the head of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, Paul Rinaldi, whose union is suing the Trump administration for freezing the earnings of members, who are preparing to miss a second paycheck on Friday. "This is adding risk into the system,” Rinaldi said in an interview with The Washington Post. “I don’t know when a system gets to that critical mass, but when you take away equipment that helps us see that a plane is on the appropriate runway, that’s risk in the system. When some of our radars are down, and we’re not able to tell the pilot that there’s dangerous weather ahead until we get a pilot report of it, that’s risk in the system.”


They're not even being trained anymore!

They say the safety of flying is in doubt.

Trump's shutdown is DANGEROUS.


That’s HOW RECKLESS HE IS AND UNCONCERNED about the safety of ordinary people.

Trump and his family ride in private government planes



Pray to God no one gets hurt

be safe

As people realize the facts things won't go well for Nancy. Republicans have twice tried to put forward a bill to pay government employees during the shut down. Democrats are blocking it because they want people to suffer. That way they can blame the evil Republicans.

Problem is with just a little bit of research you can see whats really going on this is all about trying to not to give Trump any victories. Democrats are playing a dangerous game and risk destroying their party come 2020.

I’m glad that you finally admit that it is your team that is useing the workers back wages to bargain the deal. The R’s want to pay them and to negotiate the rest. But Nancy has once again left the building. So sad.

That’s not true you’re listening to lies


The Congress has passed bills bringing the government back its that Trump won't sign the bill and McConnell won’t bring a bill that would pass to a vote because he says Trump will veto it.

I have no doubt that is your truth. Spoken like a true zealot. Like all zealots, facts typically don't agree with your truths.

Given your hard line views on Trump, would it stand to reason that it is you who is not 'giving a damn about human beings?'

You were lied to not one bill has been sent to Trump. You must watch CNN for your news huh? Republicans twice tried to get workers paid during the shut down and 213 Democrats voted against it. There's no other way to look at it but they don't want them paid. So you have to ask yourself why?

Well if they are paid they lose the press being able to say these workers are suffering. So it must be to their advantage that 800000 federal employees cant pay their Bill's.

If they really cared about the workers they would have agreed to pay them during the shut down.

It is cleaR THE MAN HAS PUT AMERICANS IN HARMS WAY.
PRAY TO GOD NO ONE GETS HURT

Though already he has ruined thousands of Americans lives:
Some are getting evicted.

Can't pay their bills while being forced to work without pay

Some have to make a choice between cancer treatment or paying the rent!

National Guardsmen are starving and going to food pantries.


They have children to feed and cloth

And worst the national airline's are almost in a state of a shutdown and have already reached a breaking point.

Thos people are working FOR NOTHING



TSA workers who have shown up for duty during the government shutdown are not being paid. The agents are getting steady offers of free food and other services by service providers, local politicians and the general public.

Thank God for the Americans helping these people

Then why won't Democrats vote to pay them? Seems like you think the same way they do. You want to use their pain and suffering as a weapon against Trump.

That's because McConnell won't let the Senate vote straight up for a bill that won't give Trump his wall.

You people are just LYING now. Distorting reality. You're not facing facts just to justify a madman who has NIO HUMAN EMPATHY in his soul.

He would starve you and your children to death to get his way and your running around LYING to justify his inhumane acts
