#TBT to when Trump said Vermont wouldn’t pay for the wall. His useless and inhumane wall would do nothing to address illegal immigration, while his shutdown would have disastrous consequences across the country.
What’s the impact of a #TrumpShutdown? 380,000 people out of work. 420,000 people forced to work without pay. 9 of 15 federal departments and dozens of agencies will shutter their doors, grinding services to the American people to a halt. appropriations.senate.gov/news/minority/…
A #TrumpShutdown has REAL consequences for REAL people. Nearly 800k ppl would be furloughed just before the holidays or forced to work w/o pay. Services would grind to a halt. All, over a desperate attempt by the Pres to please his base & protect his ego. appropriations.senate.gov/news/minority/…
