    The one with the complete lack of empathy here is Nancy Pelosi. Her refusal to negotiate a deal with Trump and give him his funding is what is dragging this on.

That's like saying when someone is blackmailed, if they would just give in, the situation would be resolved. Shutting down the government and building a wall are not related issues whatsoever. Trump and the Republicans are the ones making them related. Congress already passed a bipartisan spending bill that would keep the government opened. Trump refused to sign unless Congress adds money for a wall and now Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring any bill up in the Senate until Trump agrees. If a Democratic president shut down the government unless Congress gave $5 billion to Planned Parenthood, would you say Republicans should meet them half way and give Planned Parenthood $2 or $3 billion? What's to keep this from being a tactic used by any president for any issue regardless of how stupid it is? In any case, Trump and Republicans are being stupid because they are suffering for the shutdown more than Democrats. Numerous polls show that a little over 50% of Americans blame Trump and the GOP while around 30% blame Democrats. Trump's already low approval rating has been trending downward for weeks now.
