    What would be a better benefit to the economy: A China trade agreement or ending the government shutdown?

    If it can be established that the economy can survive and thrive while eliminating 14% of government spending, the population might not care how long this shutdown lasts.

    No one has a clue!

    I would say end shutdown in the short term.
    China trade in the long term.

    Both would send the market soaring.

    Best bet for the stock market would be a repeal of the of the 22nd amendment, and a return of Obama

    As soon as unpaid TSA workers stay home, the shutdown ends.

    Doubt it. Prez’s base will drop to low 30’s approval and he’ll end it.

    Maybe. I can’t believe they still haven’t stayed home. I wouldn’t show up for no pay.

    Many are drawing unemployment and some of the smarter ones have several months in savings to get through something like this.

    I would imagine the Dim and/or Libturd workers don't have any savings.

    Trump during the campaign:

    “I alone can fix this!”.

    What an ass hat.

    Sorry. In capitalism, people get paid to work. Has nothing to do with ones “savings”.

    Is there a ‘gross generalization’ fallacy?

    They are getting paid ... just not weekly.
    All non-Union people at UPS gets paid monthly.
    The ones that can't handle not getting paid for one week (to date) are just pathetic or to put it another way ... a government worker.

    I heard some TSA agents have already began to ask when they will get their back pay.
