  1. The Dems are "Cutting off the nose to spite the face" . This is an expression to describe a needlessly self-destructive over-reaction to a problem: "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face" is a warning against acting out of pique, or against pursuing revenge in a way that would damage oneself more than the object of one's anger.

  2. President Trump's first order of business in 2019, shut down the federal government, send half of the federal workers home, and pay the other half with food handouts. . . Chinese President Xi Jinping's first order in 2019 was telling the military and people of China to prepare for war, and apparently, not a trade war. . . .

  3. lol Really! WTF is this guy saying. These people are getting paid eventually. They just arent part of the economy anymore. 800,000 people not spending. How many jobs are they effecting by staying home? 2 maybe 3 other worker's each. 800,000 people is a city. Its billions lost.

  4. I don’t agree with this at least the first quarter. IRS is suppose to pay out billions of dollars in tax refunds. I know in my small town car sales go up during tax refunds and other goods too

  5. Trump is making the US the 3rd global economy so Russia and China can take over. That's what the FBI investigation is for. He's making America great again by weakening us at every border and against having TSA at half staff.

  6. These people are so ridiculously short sighted! Products are only as valuable as what people are willing to pay for them. People who have just had to pay multiple late charges after decimating their savings WILL NOT be buying stocks, even when they are repaid. Farmers went from selling 4.7 mil metric tons of soybeans to zero and are now not getting their bail out check because of the shutdown. This means that grocers, hair stylists, karate coaches, etc. will be feeling the reduction in spending. If it lasts into tax season, the ripples might be felt for years, because an estimated $1.4 billion is poured back into the economy from tax refunds in February and March.

    Please, Republicans, if you insist on running government like a business it MUST NOT be like one of Trump's!
