Let them eat cake mentality over a wall? Well folks maybe now you'll understand what Trump is doing to you. All this to force American's to pay for a useless wall that won't keep anyone out.

The partial shutdown has cut off new funding to the Treasury Department and the USDA, leaving them largely unstaffed and crippling both departments’ ability to fulfill core functions.

The potential cuts to food stamps and suspension of tax refunds illustrate the compounding consequences of leaving large parts of the federal government unfunded indefinitely — a scenario that became more likely Friday when President Trump said he would leave the government shut down for months or even years unless Democrats gave him money to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Any questions about the Democrats being the Enemy of the American people at this point?

No border security for Americans.

No SNAP for Americans.

No Tax Refunds for Americans.

Let's all keep voting for these America Hating POS Democrats.
You are saying the Democrats should cave to Donald Trump's fucking extortion? Yeah, good luck with that, he is not dealing with his simpleton #Trumpcultists now.

There have been longer shut downs in the past, what happened then?

If you don't mind the pain over nonsense then I'm all in. I don't need a refund or food stamps but I hope you are wealthy because if it goes on too long over a meaningless wall you will start to feel it in some ways including your 401K among other things. You are about to experience what a weakened economy is once again. Remember when the economy raged under Bush, before the fall? Hope you have a well-stocked savings account and your bank doesn't close.
