I am a government employee and this government shut down is going to force me to possible lose my home, car and not be able to care for my family. Why is it necessary for the rich to hold the middle class hostage why they bicker back and forth like little children. It's all good for them because they don't have to worry about not getting a paycheck. They are guaranteed to get paid no matter what. They sit back and play ping pong with the American people and those of us that can't afford not to be paid. It's bad enough we don't get paid but I have to show up everyday and get nothing in return while they sit up there playing chicken with us. They have to know that this is going to having far reaching consequences and they don't give a damn. They are hell bent on taking down the President. Get over it already. The healthcare act has been debated, voted on and passed and the Supreme Court has even had their say and still the Repubs can't move on they want to ruin the middle class and wipe up out. Get over yourselves and pass the damn budget so we can get on to bigger and better things. I will do my part in the upcoming election and cast my vote to get you out of office. Do what's right and put people back to work so they can take care of their families. Stop holding the country hostage for your own gratification.
