Longest Government Shutdown In U.S. History #179.


Government Stagnation Over Two Fundamentally Opposed Views.

We get absolutely nowhere if we can’t find common ground. As the government shutdown enters its second month. Government employees continue to go unpaid. But only the small fish in the large ocean are struggling. Everyday government employees, the ones who provide security, process taxes, clean our parks. Those employees are getting screwed not the senators or the president or the congressmen and women. My question is when do we no longer have to pay taxes?

I’ve written before how compromise how it’s a lose-lose situation. Which it is. However I didn’t take into consideration the fact that if no one ever sees eye to eye. You stand to lose a much greater loss if both parties don’t give anything. Sometimes losing a little to gain more is the only option.

So each side of the equation needs to give a little in order to take a little. But when both sides want way more than the other is willing to offer, you get into a stalemate. And that’s where we are with the government shutdown. Hopefully the two parties can reconcile their differences and come to a peaceful resolution where all parties involved end up with a few of their concessions. It’s the only way we’re ever going to end this government shutdown.
