I just would like to president and congress to know my story. We are average americans, i am 22, my husband is 21. Yeah we are young, but we are BOTH members of the united states military. I am active duty, and my husband is national guard. We just had our daughter September 4th. My husband JUST landed a great paying full time job with the government and we were blessed to have been given an opportunity right after having our first child. We WERE going to start paying off some bills and start saving for our child's college. Now my husband is furloughed. We have two car notes that need to be paid with other expensive's with having a newborn, not only that, but now we are stressed when we should be enjoying the new life we just brought into this world. We both work hard to serve our country who has now FAILED us. I am going to finish my contract and will no longer EVER work for a government job again, its to risky to work for a government who does not CARE if you pay your bills or not. We are to young to have our credit messed up because congress cannot do the job they are supposed to do! I also want congress to know, i knew NOTHING about how the government was ran. But now since the shut down i have re searched and learned A LOT. Now i will VOTE and i will let my voice be heard. I will not vote for any of the personnel in congress, because you are allowing this to happen, every single last one of you. I want you to know you have severally impacted my life, i am stressed beyond belief and just want to enjoy my baby while i am on maternity leave, instead i will spend the next and my last 2 weeks of leave worrying and stalking CNN to see if there has been in a change. thank you congress for failing the country i wake up everyday and serve, hope you enjoy your family and your pAYCHECKS while us AVERAGE americans SUFFER and stress how we will make ends meet. CONGRATS on doing your ONE and only JOB. I hate you all :) I do not blame obama but a part of me feels he should compromise just so those furloughed can go back to work.
