The US government is telling furloughed federal workers who to negotiate with their creditors during the Trump shutdown over a border wall.
The Office of Personnel Management tweeted: “Feds, here are sample letters you may use as a guide when working with your creditors during this furlough. If you need legal advice please consult with your personal attorney.”

Um, how many of these middle-class federal workers, who are living from paycheck to paycheck have a personal attorney?
It turns out that OPM isn’t the only government agency telling its workers what to tell their creditors. The Department of Homeland Security has prepared a “to whom it may concern” letter for its employees to send their creditors, such as banks and credit card companies, Talking Points Memo reports.
Let this sink in…. The federal government is telling workers that they should download a bunch of sample letters to keep themselves out of collections. These workers were furloughed due to Donald Trump’s temper tantrum over a wall he repeatedly said Mexico would pay for.
Democratic leaders are holding firm — no border wall. Nancy Pelosi brutally mocked Trump’s wall, saying it was reduced from a cement wall to a “beaded curtain or something.”
