13. Think you're right

Republicans are nervous and will be increasingly so the longer this shutdown goes on. 2020 is looming and will be coming 'round the corner faster than anyone realize. Already, Susan Collins and Cory Gardner have voiced 'concerns,' which is more about their own electability than anything else. I've read the airports are in chaos because TSA workers are calling in sick, a 200-300% increase. The National Park system has been overwhelmed because Trumpski irresponsibly left them open without the normal supervisory staff. All these Federal workers and contractors have been left in the lurch with no paychecks coming in and normal services have been abandoned. Have you seen the trash buildup in DC? Give it another week and the noise and complaints and outrage will grow deafening. And rightly so.

This is damn hostage situation with Trumski threatening to bring the whole government down while demanding a ransom, his $5 billion. Interestingly enough, the 11th hour is reporting that Trump had no plans for a long-tern shutdown and is only now recognizing the broader implications.
