I don't understand why President Trump and Mitch McConnell want to shut down the government over an $18 billion wall that no one wants and an unprecedented $100 billion for the military. What the American people want, overwhelmingly, is to provide legal protection and a path toward citizenship for 800,000 Dreamers and funding for CHIP, community health centers, veterans and the Social Security Administration.The American people are increasingly disgusted with a government that protects the interests of the wealthy and the powerful. We must pass a budget agreement that addresses the needs of Americans and not just billionaire campaign contributors. (Link to op-ed in bio)
