I am a 22 year-old recent college graduate who was lucky enough to find a job in this economy. It is a federally funded job that has been suspended indefinitely due to the government shut down. My life is being put on hold because of your incompetence. It disgusts me that even with hundreds of thousands of people’s livelihoods on the line congress as a whole seems incapable of reaching a budget agreement. Are your egos really more important than your constituent’s ability to support themselves? You were elected because Americans believed that you would help to improve their quality of life, that you would look out for them. Have you forgotten that your job is to serve the people? I have taxes to pay, I have student loans to pay, I have groceries to buy, and I now have no income. How is this going to work? Republican, Democrat, Independent, I don’t care. Stop doing what’s best for your party and start doing what’s right for your people.
