The President and Congress are to blame for the government shutdown. It is their job to get a budget passed for the entire year, not just a month at a time. In Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike are at fault. However, given the fact that all three branches of government are controlled by Republicans, the GOP as a whole will receive most of the criticism.
Get back to the negotiating table and address military funding, Indian Health Service allocations, immigration reform, children’s healthcare, a NASA budget and CDC funding, just to name a few agencies that need money. There needs to be monies for the entire government, not just the CHIP program. Get back to work. That’s what you were elected to do.
To the President Trump, the House of Representatives and the Senate: Do. Your. Job.
