Before every one lines up to shoot the messenger, I’m from a country that has its fair share of instability in government. We have had seven Prime Ministers in the past ten years and with the elections looming in a couple of months the figure will become eight!!. Whilst difference on policy matters is one reason EGO is also a reason.
Now as to the USA, as I see it (read as disclaimer), this all comes down to “cause & effect”. If you could by “reason” eliminate the cause you have removed the effect and have a re-opened government. I’d be interested in reading how the President knows that most of the effected people in government jobs fully support not getting paid, not being able to pay their rent or mortgage, buy groceries, pay for child care, health care etc etc, for however long this stalemate is prolonged, when by his own admission the majority of government workers are said to be Democrats. This seems nonsensible.
