If you look closely at the picture you can see sadness on some of their faces. Can you even imagine how it feels to know that your family’s life is being put in the balance because your leaders can’t get it together? We are talking about the people who won their states because they promised to look after their people.
This is America and we are acting like some third world country that some of these guys served in. How can anyone in congress sleep at night? How can Trump sleep at night knowing that their inability to get along is causing so many families pain. Our workers are being oppressed and having it sugar coated by being told they will get funds at a later date.

Our leaders are not leading.
