Government Shutdown

It is now more than two weeks since the partial government shutdown and like in most situations the ones who played no part in it are those most affected. I am all for border security, most of us are but surely there has to be a better way than to hold the people of this country to ransom.

This obsession with a wall seems to be more of a desire to satisfy Trump’s ego than it is about securing the borders. While the power play continues and the government fail to come to a resolution hard working taxpayers must worry about how they are going to pay their bills. How is this okay? Isn’t ironic that politicians usually say they work for the people and yet in so many situations the people have no say in what they do?
