25% of the federal government is shut down due to democrats not funding it through regular appropriations. 800K federal employees, many of whom are democrat party union members. The @HouseGOP passed funding for it. @SenateDems refused to vote in favor of, just as Trump predicted.
So when this appeared today people in the DNCmedia went off, but let's look at the details shall we? First the article and one FABULOUS Wilbur Ross in question..

Wilbur Ross doesn’t understand why furloughed federal workers need food banks rollcall.com/news/whitehous… via @RollCall
Let's not lose sight of context. The funding Trump's asking for border security and wall funding is $5.7 billion or less than 1/2 of 1% of the budget. Wilbur is looking at the big picture. He's Secretary of Commerce and responsible for ALL the American people, not just the 800K.
So you might think WHOA, heartless! Right? Not even close for a number of reasons. Congress is responsible for appropriating funds right? Well did you know..
You think that vote was a one off? No, @HouseGOP voted TWICE to make sure federal employees were paid until the shut down is resolved.
Now @TheDemocrats will tell you we've held votes to fund the government. That's true but NOT, they passed 9 Continuing Resolutions that give temporary funding to those departments but solve nothing. Trump has said he's not going to do a #SchumerShutDown again. DeJa Vu Omnibus2018
Of the 800K Federal employees, most of you have union funds that are available to you. So until democrats do their job and fund the wall, you can file for unemployment and no, it won't affect you getting your back-pay. You're welcome.

Hey, if you're one of the DACA / Dreamers from last year that @TheDemocrats shut down the government for and left our military without pay you know you were used as pawns. What did you get? President Trump is still trying to help you, and the democrats are still empty promises..
See, I know many who are federal employees and they're currently working without pay ~ it's hard on them. They are praying President Trump DOESN'T give in because they take the oath they swore to seriously.
They put their country FIRST.
To be clear, I don't lump all federal employees into one category or party. I was one. It's why I care about Congress doing their job. See my pinned tweet if you need an explanation, because this is not about party. It's about our country.
