In a Shutdown Pickle

It would appear that we aren’t in a much different situation than we were before with respect to the shutdown. Donald Trump has just delayed the inevitable. He is still threatening to shut down the government again, and the Democrats have absolutely no need to cave (like he just did). He could call a national state of emergency, but that would almost certainly be blocked in the courts (at least for months or even years).

    Way I see it:If Trump calls another shut down, the pilots land the planes and go home, air traffic controllers get the last incoming plane down and go home. TSA goes home. No 35 day wait. The country is paralyzed. Be up and running again right away. No delay
