I am a federal employee who is currently furloughed and wondering how long exactly am I going to go without pay? A few days, weeks, months? How ridiculous is this all going to get? And most importantly...why? Because my supposed leaders can't do their job I, along with over 700,000 other federal employees, have to pay the price? I would like congress to explain to me what actions of mine are responsible for this? Why must I suffer for your inadequacies and in-competencies? As far as I'm concerned, and I'm sure millions of other VOTERS will agree, you are ALL responsible, regardless of whether you are a Democrat or a Republican. There is always a way to compromise and meet in the middle. After all, isn't compromise and getting along with others something we teach our children from a young age? I considered myself a Republican, but after someone decided that it's OK to use me, along with THOUSANDS of others, as pawns in their political game I have definitely lost all faith in the Republican party. Using people's livelihoods as ransom is in no way acceptable. This of course doesn't mean that I have gained any faith in the Democratic party. The "my way or the highway" approach isn't any better and you Democrats are equally responsible for this. So please....stop pointing fingers at each other and admit that you ALL have failed your people. Or perhaps you have all forgotten that we are in fact people and not just numbers. You are here to serve us and represent our best interests. You have failed miserably at that! It is clear that it is not our interests you are protecting, but your own personal egos. But please remember...the next time you are up for re-elections we WILL NOT FORGET. After a summer of furloughs and taking cuts in pay because of your failures, and now being furloughed again, and indefinitely, you are all beyond the point of forgiveness and during the next elections I will have one clear voting strategy. And that is to vote out the incumbent, regardless of political affiliation. It is time all these toddlers be removed and replaced with rational adults who actually care about the well being of our nation and its citizens.
And last but definitely not least, lets not forget that the nation's number one leader is not exempt from all this and cannot be separated from Congressional failures. Put simply, this whole "whatever I say goes, and there will be no negotiations" deal is sounding a lot like a dictatorship. And here I thought we were trying to fight the dictators of this world and give those people freedom.
You have all failed miserably and have let down your country. So why are you all still getting paid while the rest of us have to deal with the uncertainty and anxiety of when our next pay check will be? Perhaps we are at fault here. We are at fault for ever voting you in!!!!
