Agreed. It's always the lowest people who suffer. The Senate and House members should be the FIRST ones to sacrifice pay. The Chucky's and Lil' Nans don't give a rats behind about the American people, only seek to upset the President whom they despise with all their hearts. Ironic isn't it when the dems were the minority how they would always profess that we needed a 'bi-partisan government working together to solve problems' but as soon as they got to be the majority, they want nothing to do with supporting President Trump on anything. It isn't about the $5 billion, it is about trying to ensure NOTHING he wants gets supported. It's like healthcare. Make politicians pay their own way and watch how fast a healthcare resolution gets resolved. I have some Hispanic/Mexican neighbors and friends at church and some are Dems but they ALL agree the wall needs to be built. My next door neighbor has her elderly mother living with her. They are from Mexico, came here legally, and she told me about the atrocities of the drug cartels do in Mexico. If you fight them you are dead. She said her husband was killed by them when he refused to be a mule and this is going back to the 80's.
