Someone on AM Joy finally said what I've been saying.

If Trump or any of the repukes ever shuts down the government again, federal workers should walk that day. All of them. Then see how long the shutdown lasts. By continuing to show up every day and working for no pay, the effects of the shutdown take a month or more to really be felt by the public. From travel to food inspections, the situation tends to grow more precarious day-by-day as we saw but if every federal workers walks day-one, then the shutdown will end over night. Let's hope it doesn't happen again but at least we learned how to end it quickly the next time the idiots in Washington have a pissing match. I guess we have to be the adults.

But many would be fired. Itís tough to give up oneís career because of a babyís narcissistic temper tantrum.
