  1. the headline says it all – the DemocRATS should have at least negotiated with the President not to shut down the gov’t and not lose all this money. all the business people and consumers that lost this money can blaim the DemocRATS for trying to “protect” the ILLEGALS from being deported back to their countries and make American Citizens lose all this money

    Thank you Pelosi & Schumer – they’ll remember you in the next election and turn you into a regular citizen

  2. If anything, the less gubmit spends on “non essential services” the better. In fact, none of us, regular taxpayers unaffiliated with government goldmines, is lacking anything throughout these weeks of “government shutdown”. Why not save taxpayer money, and fire all these “non essential personnel” altogether. Build the wall, and cut government in half!
