Well, it's January 2018, and here we go again. Back in 2013, our third son was in the U.S. Army, and we were concerned about his next paycheck. Remember that government shutdown? By the way, I want to be fair and spread some of the blame here. This is really another sign of a dysfunctional system that requires 60 votes to order coffee from the cafeteria. Nevertheless, what was this shutdown really about? First, it is about Democrats who wanted to spoil President Trump's first anniversary.
