Fed shutdown impacts air traffic controllers, Coast Guard, National Parks, taxpayers

“This is a Trump shutdown and a political stunt designed to appeal to the president’s extreme base, creating convenient confusion and chaos given his impending legal calamities,” U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier said in a prepared release. “For the benefit of our country, we must put to rest the notion that this border wall boondoggle is anything but a Trump reality TV show rerun. And we must immediately fund and reopen the government.”

(Trump should not draw a paycheck during the shutdown. Isn't he a federal employee, too? And note that the shutdown costs the government more than it saves in salaries. Serious damage is being done to infrastructure and services every day.)
