Listen: President, Democrats And Congress discussed on Sports Central with Greg Matzek
"On Twitter have brand anyone that supports the president or identifies themselves as Republican as the enemy as evil as racist. And I just I asked the question. Where's this going? If you want to be somebody who where politics is your sole purpose for living. You're going to end up being disappointed. Politicians elected officials will disappoint you. Look no further than in Washington DC. Approval rating for members of congress as low as it gets along with lawyers. And you know, what these lawyers worked for their clients. They get stuff done, hence the. Large number of as you see on television every day. Congress not so much. We've got a shutdown because two groups of people Republicans Democrats can't figure out an issue that shouldn't be that hard to figure out. But because of politics, they don't want to. On the democratic side. We have candidates. Presidents in current elected officials like Nancy Pelosi and others who probably a decade ago had a much different opinion on the border importer security. But because it's now it's politically unpopular to say those things with this president in office. They've done a one eight. Essentially denying everything they said ten years ago about the border and border security. On the other side. Republicans led by the president have said unless we get this money for the wall five point seven billion roughly, and I've heard a couple of different numbers. We're not gonna approve anything. We're gonna shut the government Donna here. We are two plus weeks into the shutdown with no end in sight despite weekend meetings at the White House. Four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. Do you think that we're letting politics destroy everything else, we do including just living our lives? People still gonna work raising their families having fun watching television going to movies going to sporting events. Although it wasn't fun to be in Chicago Soldier Field yesterday. Are we letting politics ruin our lives? Four one four seven nine nine one six twenty more next right here. WTMJ eight fifty four these video"
