    Yeah. We should all be allowed to just grab any sign we can grab and prance around like idiots for the cameras.

    What Trump (and clearly many on this board) do not realize....if you are living paycheck to paycheck....when something like this hits you it can affect you like a slow rolling tidal wave or tsunami).

    You cannot pay a bill...so you put it on the credit card. You cannot pay the credit card so they give you late fees. You cannot pay another bill, so it gets reported on your credit. And so on.

    If you are paycheck to paycheck....you do not have daddy out there to float ya a million.

    I am happy that many on this board seem to have enough socked away that being without a paycheck is no big deal.

    But for me, after weathering multiple family crisis over the course of 3 years, I am in a get back on track mode. Being without a paycheck would be devastating.

    This is Trump's shut down with a sprinkle of Coulter and Limbaugh.

    Let these people go back to work.

    BTW, does anybody feel safer knowing that people who we depend on to keep us secure are working without being paid?

    Also, there are likely thousands of contracted employees that will not get a check after the shut down.

    You dont think the Democrats should sign a bill they dont agree with. Why should trump sign a bill he does not agree with?

    Open up the government and negotiate.

    Negotiation is not holding hostage.

    He is holding innocent parties hostage.

    Well, since he is SUPPOSED to be working for the people and the people through their representatives have made their will known it is his obligation to sign it.

    That we have elected officials acting like children over something that we have a right to secure! The democrats want point to trump as a problem. The Americans who voted for trump saw something that he was going to do. The democrats doesn’t care about you if you are a noncitizen now you are important

    Interest accrues on credit cards, car loans, mortgages, etc. That doesn't go away. The one good thing out of this has been that Trump and his supporters are being shown for the federal worker haters they are. Already many federal workers (even those that aren't furloughed) see how much Trump and the GOP hate them and are willing to jeopardize their lives for political gain.

    The problem is McConnell won't even put a bill to VOTE so it could be sent to Trump. It's good to know you don't mind the senate playing political games with people's lives. The senate should put to vote the house bill and if it passes, then let Trump veto it. You guys are cheering McConnell and Trump on for their extortion.
