The only national emergency has been created by the man in White House. Asylum seekers are not a national emergency. NOT PAYING federal employees is a national emergency that is having a horrible ripple effect throughout the economy. Congress and 45 should go without pay until the budget is passed in a bipartisan manner. McConnell should not be allowed to hold up the vote. If 45 veto the bill, override the veto.

We do not need a border wall. 45 is talking to his base and is totally off base. He has NO RESPECT for: the Office of Presidency, for Congress and cabinet members, for federal employees, for our allies, for the people of this nation and, ironically, for himself. 45 is the national emergency.
