Folks, we have, unfortunately, elected an entire Senate full of men and women who think the way to do business is equal to playground tactics. If you don't play by my rules, I just won't let you play the game anymore. If you don't play by my rules, thousands of workers won't get paid. If you don't play by my rules, we just shut the doors on hundreds of government offices. If you don't play by my rules ... you get my drift.
Did we elect mature adults or a bunch of third-graders? My good sense tells me the system is broken, so very broken, and the folks there in charge in D.C. have no desire to repair it. Why would they? They still get their paychecks.
Well, if I had my way, President Trump would execute a different type of executive order. One that cancels their paychecks until they fix this mess they created. Because right now, they have absolutely nothing to lose by sitting on their collective hands, which is what they all seem to do best. - Diane Baker, Sioux City
