President Trump is hoping to address the nation tomorrow night regarding the partial government shutdown that is now in its third week. At issue is the administration’s request for several billion dollars to build a border wall. Congressman Don Bacon says the only way to untie this complicated knot is to compromise.
Congressman Bacon says, “The end game, both sides have to find a middle ground. Nancy Pelosi says zero dollars for a wall. She calls it immoral. But we do know that walls work and our border patrol says they only want to put walls in targeted areas where they need it. They are not talking a 2,000 mile wall. To say zero dollars, that isn’t going to fly. There has to be a middle ground. The president is asking for $5 billion. They are going to have to come back with a compromise that meets part way.”
Bacon has not yet met many of the freshman congressmen but does have a lot of Democrat friends in Congress who desire to find common areas. However, there are between 90 to 100 hard-core leftists and their goal is resistance.
