Vox: The real victims of a government shutdown are poor kids


To the right wing asshole who crowed he had survived all the other shutdowns and just “build the wall:” you weren’t working for minimum wage to serve government fat cats who are going to keep getting paid even though they have proven they are incapable of doing their job, which is governing. You didn’t have to go without money for food, rent, heating, and wow, maybe even a present or two for your kids at Christmas. You and all of your MAGAhatter buddies should be ashamed.

Merry Christmas


Government shutdowns hurt poor families and low-paid workers

Parts of the federal government will run out of money in a week if the White House and Congress don’t pass a spending bill – and President Donald Trump seems just fine with that. He said on Tuesday that he would be ” proud ” to shut down the federal government if Congress doesn’t give him $5 billion to build a border wall.
