Friday/ President Art-Of-The-Deal & his Republicans shut down the government

In a way, it’s fitting that under the Republicans, the government shut down – on the eve of the dysfunctional Trump administration’s one-year anniversary. Since I don’t work for the government or the military, the shutdown does not affect me in a big way.  I do feel sorry for American kids on CHIP* and immigrant kids on DACA*, who are impacted.  It’s disheartening that politics and governing are so broken in the United States Congress.

*CHIP: Children’s Health Insurance Program.  DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an executive directive from the Obama administration that halted deportation of immigrant children brought to the USA by their parents. Trump rescinded DACA.
