We don’t cave to bullies, Mr. Bergman

Mr. (Jack) Bergman: The government was forced to close because 45 didn’t get what he wanted/promised in his campaign. Democrats have asked that he open up the government and put 800,000 of our fellow workers back to work, and then negotiate border security. Holding these people and the government hostage is a direct attack on our constitution, and should never be used to coerce legislation. When you refer to the other representatives in the House as “minions,” you should know that name-calling does nothing to ingratiate us to you as a representative of these people.
