As the partial federal government shutdown hits day 25, perhaps there's lots more to the story than meets the eye. Has it all been a plan by Trump to dramatically pare down the government workforce? Once the shutdown hits 30 days, Trump can order a reduction in force or RIF and fire many non-essential employees. It certainly gives him leverage with the Dems as they couldn't stand seeing hundreds of thousands of their natural constituents on the street and unemployed. Is it 4-D Chess or our imagination?
