Mr. President and the members of the House and Senate,

It is imperative for the Federal Government to end the stalemate between the Congress and the President to return a majority of the government to operation and restore benefits and compensation to civil servants.

While I understand the rhetoric offered regarding the government shutdown, and the partisan accusations from Democrats and Republicans alike. What is most critical, at this juncture, as the fourth week of shutdown begins, is to get the government back in operation. Is funding a border wall between the United States and Mexico, which is of dubious efficacy by most reasoned accounts and analysis, worth crippling the greatest nation in the world?

Party politics aside, what is first and foremost in the ongoing conversation is not to draw a line in the sand and not negotiate. If party politics can be set aside it will be possible to achieve what is best for the country - to get back to business - and to create a pathway, supported and founded on bipartisan, analytic, assessments and findings for what is of national importance: Making America Great Again.

To continue to act in an irresponsible manner, which both sides of this impasse are doing, makes America the laughing stock of the entire globe.
