    Does anyone miss it?
    What effects did it have on you?
    Just curious...are we getting our money’s worth?

    Meanwhile, Congress is still getting their pay check while other federal employees are not.
    Where is the outrage?
    The double standard is glaring.

      My son and his wife will likely stay home Monday.  For as many days as necessary to get money to the govt.

      And, when that money comes in, the taxpayer will then pay them for staying home.  Makes great sense, doesn't it?

        Under 8 years of Democrats and Obama, they chose not to do any legislation on immigration reform.
        Now, they are in the minority and DACA is the most important thing on their agenda...enough to shut down our government?
        Are they insane with TDS?

        The American people does not want a shut down or politics as usual...
        Thst was why Trump got elected to drain the swamp...
        Schumer and Pelosi...you are the swamp...don’t you get it?
        Please just leave the rest of us alone and retire to your millions.
        You have milked the American people enough already.

          DACA is suddenly important because Trump refuses to ignore the law and instead insists that he WILL perform his sworn duty as President.  That Obama ignored his duty and responsibility in pretending that he needn't enforce the nations laws seems insufficient to convince Trump to do the same.

          Of course, that leaves the entire field of immigration reform on the table, even after dealing with DACA kids.
