Disturbing facts

To the editor:

During the past three fiscal years, the U.S. Congress has failed to pass a budget and pushed through 10 continuing resolutions.

We are enduring a partial federal government shutdown because the Congressional establishment will not budget a very reasonable $5-plus billion in a real budget or a continuing resolution.

Our president has the country’s interest at heart by holding the line on getting the $5-plus billion for southern border security to help make this country safer from the assault on our country that has been going on for years at our southern border.

What is going on in Washington, D.C., is absolutely insane. The congressional establishment, not our president, does not have the best interest of our country in mind with their present behavior.

I hope and pray the congressional phone lines get overwhelmed with calls from citizens demanding they get real and put something on our president’s desk containing the $5-plus billion for southern border security.
