President Trump started the third government shutdown of 2018 on December 22. As of today, January 12, 2019, the government is still shut down. Some federal workers have been furloughed and are not being paid. Others are required to work and are not being paid. It’s time to stop playing around with people’s lives. We need better schools, better roads, and a federal government that works. We don’t need a wall, and we don’t need a president who plays with people’s lives.
