WEB Notes: Every year or so it is the same sad story. The government faces a potential shutdown! Lions, Tigers and Bears oh my! I recall it shutting down during the Obama administration and all that meant was Americans could not visit National Parks and anything else that would tick off the tax payer. It did nothing to reign in spending. They will not stop the spending, it is not going to happen which means they will continue to be in debt and the debt will rise until it is time for it all to come crashing down. End of story.
President Donald Trump will face off with Democratic leaders of Congress on Thursday in a high-stakes White House meeting intended to bridge differences over a spending bill and prevent a government shutdown.
U.S. House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer will join Trump and Republican congressional leaders for talks after canceling a similarly planned meeting last week when the president posted a disparaging note about them on Twitter.
