    Default BAM, endgame in sight for Shutdown...

    5-6 Republicans came out today in favor of opening individual portions of the Government.

    You got Rubio joining the usual suspects this morning.

    Maybe this is how it ends, leaving the single issue of the wall outstanding after the government is back and running otherwise.

    same as it was before on the votes, maybe a few less...try again.
    Leadership is backing Trump -see what happens today when he goes to Capitol Hill

    The longer it goes on the more non-essential employees will quit and find real jobs, and that will reduce the federal workforce, maybe help to balance the budget.

    They have real jobs now, Tinkerbell.

    You should look into that some day. Get off the welfare rolls and save us the money.

    Rubio is a notable flip for the Democrats.

    You really should think before you post. The positions will merely be open then and refilled. Thinking isn't your strong suit is it.

    I heard they could easily peel off 25 Republicans. Now the other 20 CHICKENSHIT Reps. can let the 5 or 6 put their heads out for TRUMP to attack! WhereTF HAS MC CONNELL BEEN? CHAOS, utter chaos and the 'turtle' has his head up the ass end of his 'shell'!!

    I'll tell you how you get all Republicans to line up in favor of ending the shutdown.

    Really all you would have to do is shut down the Department of Agriculture's food stamps program, and Trump's buck-toothed hillbilly base would immediately realize how much they actually love Kenyan Marxism Socialism.

    Only refilled if the budget allows. Plus with a strong economy it's difficult to find qualified employees.

    NOT TO MENTION THE FARMERS!! Remember the SNAP program is administered and paid through the DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE! No food stamps to buy bread or even corn flakes and Cocoa Puffs demand for grains TAKES A HIT!
