800,000 federal employees are panicking about paying for rent and their living expenses and Trump is using the #TrumpsShutdown to collect donations

@realDonaldTrump has been a con his whole life
Is he running out of money for his legal expenses? Conspiracy against America can be quite expensive to defend
Besides hurting federal employees this shutdown has worked as a perfect distraction for Putin and Trump overseas.

It’s #shutdownstory time!

I have over 30 yrs with the government, 22+ yrs with the US Coast Guard. My husband is retired military and a DOD employee. We’re comfortable, paying cash for our son’s community college, 4 cars, fun vacations.
The lead-up to the shutdown, my boss tells me to pull back my use/lose annual leave. No, it’s okay! The govt won’t shut down!

Yeah, joke’s on me.

Week 1 feels normal since I was on leave. However, we tell our son that his Christmas present is his community college tuition.
Week 2: Feelings of dread start kicking in. My 16 year-old New Beetle is rear ended. I tell my hair guru no cut today, just color. Pay $350 for college text books (used & rentals).

Yes, many federal workers will be hurt

Also: Economic Impact - businesses, state & local govt's, contractors

No new grants or contracts:
-Transportation - Infrastructure Week!
-USDA (farmers!)
-Commerce, Housing, EPA, NASA, more…
Congressional Research Service
(Congress telling itself the effects)

-Measurable effect on national GDP
-grants, programs + services - costs of delay
-state and local governments depend on federal funding (can’t help their own citizens)…

"No funds shall be drawn from the Treasury but in consequence of Appropriations made by Law"

Approps should have been passed last September!

Federal agenices can't issue new grants or contracts (RFPs NOFAs, etc)
