Another government shutdown

The United States government has been shut down for 20 days. The Democrats are blaming the Republicans, whom send the blame right back to the Democrats. The people that suffer are the people of the United states of America. The issue seems to be over the wall, which was approved during last year’s testosterone show between the two sides, when the budget was again in dispute.

The brass tacks of this whole thing revolve around illegal immigration, and the people that support each side. Illegal is illegal, but that seems to be a grey area for some members of society. Christians all know, God cannot look upon sin, any sin regardless of severity. Be it steeling a piece of chewing gum from a convince store, lying to someone, even taking of another person’s life. The are all seen equally in the eyes of God; severity of the sin has no bearing, it is all breaking Gods law

If you ask the average individual whether they thought killing, rape or theft, should be made legal, in all probability, they would emphatically agree that they should remain punishable by incarceration, because all are breaking the Laws of our Nation. But crossing the boarders of our sovereign nation illegally, becomes a grey area to some.

In the 2017 September publication of Insider magazine, FAIR (federation for immigration reform) stated the cost of Illegal immigration rose from 63 billion in 2010 to 116 billion in 2017 to Taxpayers in this country, allocated for medical, law enforcement, and education, with over 72% of that cost, falling on the individual states.

President Trump asked congress for 5 billion to complete the wall, which would severely reduce the illegal immigration, but it would also make a massive reduction in illegal drug trafficking across the border, as well as deter terrorist entrance making America safer and stronger. Perhaps we need to re-evaluate congress, and ask how much we would save if we abolished their separate healthcare plan, and life long pay plan after serving even 1 term in congess.

      Yes, Yes, Yes. The arrogance and greed of congress to have all these benefits, and speak unrealistically about how the other 80% live and get by. Term limits and remove special medical insurance and lifetime retirement benefits. YES!
