(TOWNHALL) – As the government shutdown rolls into its third week, ask yourself one question: Do you miss it? Perhaps a better question is, "Have you noticed?" Outside of the news coverage of it, or if you're one of the more than 300,000 non-essential government employees on a delayed-pay vacation, odds are you haven't. But Democrats are hoping you do, and are about to partner with their friends in the media to try everything they can in an attempt to make that happen.
Expect to see a parade of worst-case-scenarios trotted out in profile packages on the nightly news and Capitol Hill press conferences. Furloughed bureaucrats and government contractors will talk about how they are weeks, if not days away from eviction, repossession, their water being shut off, or some other calamity that can only be averted by President Donald Trump agreeing to reopen the government.
The reason for the shutdown building a border wall will not be addressed in any but the most dismissive of terms. Speaker of the House Nancfy Pelosi called the very idea of a barricade between the United States and Mexico "immoral," and if there's one thing someone who supports unfettered abortion up till the moment of birth knows about it's immorality, though from the other end.
