If our founding fathers could see what was going on this day and age, they would rage war against us. Washington is so corrupt these days. Obama is trying to kill the american dream with this obama care crap. Yes I am a civilian government employee, yes my check has stopped "i will not get paid" until this shutdown is over. I am a republican and believe in what they are wanting to do, i dont want them to back down to Obama and the democrats. Fight for what is right!. Insurance should not be giving to just anybody. I work hard to pay for my own insurance, why should I work harder to pay for everyone else. It's goin to kill me financially trying to keep the insurance i have if this obama care crap stays funded. My rates will double or triple if it does, I'll have to drop my insurance and just pay the fine, that would save me a ton of money. I would have to save as much money as i could for medical expenses but i believ it's worth it. The only people i believe who should qualify are the truely disabled, and i dont mean all the con artist who say there back hurts and recieve benifits then you see them moving a couch up 6 flights of stairs. Get a job and pay for your own like every other true american does, who cares if you clean toilets at m'c donalds atleast those people are trying. But on the downside of things, during this shutdown i have no income to provide for my family, i have a wife, stepson, and a baby boy due any day now. which the government is making me work without pay during this shutdown and not allowing any leave so I can be there for the birth of my son. I've got news for them my son is more important then my duties as a lock and dam operator. I WILL BE THERE. Don't back down republicans, I would rather deal with my finances now with the shutdown then with obama care and it's impact on the back bone of this country "UNDER PAID BLUE COLLAR AMERICANS". We built this! Not the over paid "crybaby's" in washington. GOD Bless the real American's, Blue Collar American's.
