Shutdown over: What next?
Long time Federal Employee
I have been a Federal employee for the last 40 years and 6 months; the last 32 years with the same agency. This is the first time I have ever been furloughed. That speaks volumes of the incompetence of the current president and congress...both Republicans and Democrats.
It is embarassing knowing that the whole world is watching our so-called leaders do nothing but bicker back and forth like spoiled brats. Obama is more concerned about give milions of dollars to other countries instead of taking care of the American people; at the same time furloughing the Federal employees. All while the U.S. is in dire straits financially. This country is run by a bunch of bullies with HUGE egos. Firing this group of incompetence is what is needed.
