Have the Democrats finally realized that we desperately need Border Security and a Wall on the Southern Border. Need to stop Drugs, Human Trafficking,Gang Members & Criminals from coming into our Country. Do the Dems realize that most of the people not getting paid are Democrats?

“Do the Dems realize that most of the people not getting paid are Democrats?”
Prznint Stupid seemingly suggested that the issue of stiffing federal workers during the shutdown HE built doesn’t matter because, you know, they’re playing for Team Pelosi.
Those of you with a memory greater than a goldfish may remember:
“But many of those workers have said to me, and communicated: stay out until you get the funding for the wall. These federal workers want the wall.”
So only Democrats are not getting paid AND they want to remain out of work until the wall gets built. Oooo-kay… He’s really throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks. (See what I did there?)
Anyway, the gubmint is here to offer some advice to those Team Blue who are on furlough:
“The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) suggested furloughed workers could offer partial payments to mortgage lenders and posted on its website form letters they could use.
“I am a Federal employee who has recently been furloughed due to a lack of funding of my agency,” said one of three templates offered by the agency. “Because of this, my income has been severely cut and I am unable to pay the entire cost of my mortgage, along with my other expenses.”
“In a Twitter post, OPM said idled workers should contact personal attorneys if they needed advice on dealing with creditors.”
Helpful advice! I’m surprised Trump didn’t put up an 800 number to the prestigious law firm of Dewy, Screwem, and Howe (a wholly owned Trump subsidiary).
