Sen. Alexander has already announced he will not be running for re-election. His oath of office does not mention anything about keeping the government open, but it does swear to protect the nation and keep its citizens safe. If he cannot keep that oath, he should do the honorable thing: resign now, and let someone who can fulfill the job step up.

So the only people that should have job security are government workers?
I disagree. No one has total job security.

We should never allow politicians to be elected if they're not going to protect the American people.

That would make a more appropriate headline

If the government refuses the will of the people we most definitely should shut it down.

I think he doesn't care for shutdowns because it makes obvious how utterly bloated governments are.

The left is fighting for everything that center-right America is not. (Cue the video from the New York State Senate this week with a standing ovation for late-term and partial-birth abortion now codified into law.

They fight in favor of everything America does not want. Sexual identity issues, seventy-percent tax rates, and leniency on Americans who attempt to join ISIS.)

They blame Trump for their unsuccessful fights and for this reason they want him gone.

Sen. Lamar Alexander even proves it has been 5 failed administrations who failed to complete the task of securing the country and the president is going to get it done. Period!

GReat job Maria, and L Alexander spoke of 1.6 bill for the physical barrier only when we need so much more. A defeat for Trump by a spineless congressman.

With all due respect Mr Alexander,
Our representatives give away to much of the u.s. tax dollars, to foreign aid, to country's that just aren't deserving of those dollars
, in doing so, it leaves our coffers emptied, thereby creating shortages the American people need, ..please stop giving away our moneys

The excuse all 7 people that broke party lines made was "I just want government open". Those 7 people are weak.

At least Pelosi and Schumer actually stand for something, even if that thing they stand is for to be as obstructionist and regressive as possible. I have more respect for them right now, than I do this Alexander person.
