I only feel for those govt folks who do not have a paycheck yet. I don't really care about the congressmen who were not paid their $10,000 increase in their wages.
However there are some Republicans who are looking into opening up the govt again without the wall. Maybe they can do this without the president's consent. I think they should.
It's like Trump is holding his breath to get his way. They need to resist giving into him.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
