Pelosi Would Rather Keep The U.S. Government “Closed Forever” Than Fund Border Wall

Speaking at a press conference House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declared that she will not negotiate border wall funding and will instead keep the “government closed forever.”

Asked by a reporter if having government shutdown will impede the Democratic Party agenda when she takes the gavel in January, Pelosi declared that “it’s just what we have to do.”

To the Washington politicians, a government shutdown is apocalyptic. People will die, buildings will crumble, muh roads won’t be maintained, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

To the vast majority of us, however, we honestly couldn’t care less. The only people who do get affected are non-essential personnel within the government. So park employees, museum employees, monument minders would all be sent home until the shutdown ends. Federal employees will still receive paychecks and VA benefits and tax refunds may be delayed. While I feel horrid for all of those listed, it’s not exactly the end of the world.

You’ll wake up tomorrow morning and planes won’t be falling out of the skies as the air traffic controllers will still be at work. You’ll still even be accosted by the TSA while you’re at the airport too. Your mail will still arrive at its usual time as the post office will still be open.

In other words, it’s very likely you won’t notice a difference.

Interestingly, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) is prophesying her typical brand of doom and gloom, threatening that President Donald Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing when it comes to threatening the shut down of a government if he doesn’t get his funding for a border wall. Speaking to the press about the fight between Trump and the Democrats over funding for the border wall, Pelosi made it seem like Trump was a drunken child behind the wheel who doesn’t understand that he’s about to drive his vehicle straight into the wall and that a government shutdown is so bad for the country that it costs us dearly.

I wouldn’t expect anything less from the party of obstruction. They will never realize how bad this really makes them look. So Democrats want to harangue President Trump with his ‘I’d rather close the government than give up on security’ and then Nancy Pelosi wants to close it indefinitely? Logic knows no starting point with liberals.
