The partial government shutdown has been going on since Saturday and guess what? The world has not fallen apart yet.
According to ABC News the government is not even close to a deal to reopen the closed portions of the government:
The impasse has left about 420,000 federal workers working without pay and another 380,000 furloughed.
The Senate is scheduled to be in session later Thursday afternoon, but votes on a spending bill to re-open and fund the government aren’t yet scheduled since an agreement between Democrats and President Donald Trump hasn’t been reached. The House isn’t expected to meet formally Thursday.
The best thing for this country and economy is to keep the government closed. The rate of spending has decreased and has slowed down the impending doom of debt that this country inherits every minute.
There are always the naysayers that believe the purge is going to happen if the government is shutdown, but when a lack of government has a chance to thrive we start to see good things happen.
While I don’t agree with the reason Trump closed the government (over a stupid wall) it is still the best thing for this country. The Democrats should continue to fight him on the wall because it is a waste of taxpayer dollars. Those are dollars that could be coming back to me instead of spent on a wall that won’t work.
Therefore, keep the government shutdown! It is for the better!
