As the government shutdown continues on, the frustration from all walks of life in this country is palpable.
The latest anxiety is that if TSA absences continue, this will create multiple issues at our nation’s airports.
The fact is that the government has to re-open at some point. We cannot continue to allow this orange hued man baby to continue to take an adult tantrum and holds the paychecks of government workers hostage.
While keeping our borders secure is a non-negotiable issue, we should not be wasting $5 Billion dollars to build the wall and then waste even more money for security and maintenance.
On this morning’s Brian Lehrer Show, US Representative Nita Lowey (D-NY) proposed a plan to re-open the government while continuing with negotiations in regards to the wall and border security. I personally think that it is best of both worlds, but I am not the final decision maker in this process.
The fact is that the American voter has a long memory, especially when it comes to elections and more specifically, Presidential elections. We vote with our wallets as much as we vote with our cultural/social/religious beliefs. If he wants to become a two President and not a one term President, he had better find a way to compromise and re-open the government. Otherwise he might be a one term President.
