Solution to the shutdown

It seems no big deal that individuals and their families are hurting.
You have to look at the big picture.

We need to spend 5B toward a wall.
If we spend 5B lets do in aid of a comprehensive border solution and DACA.

My solution - Every Union in the country do a one day - no work day. Then do another one, and another, randomly once a week.

When people who booked their travel weeks ago can't go because the govt is shut down. When business people can't get to the meeting, on the next big deal. When Jim the accountant can't get downtown to work because no bus or train is running.

Then maybe the Government will get the message that they cannot sit on their hands. They have to resolve this situation.

Currently the pain is only being felt by a relative few. It is time to spread the pain.

It is time to make this a big deal for everybody.
