Shutdown over: What next?
Federal employee out of work
Being without a paycheck is a hardship, but my message to the President: Do not give in to the extortionists from the Tea Party. Do not negotiate. I'm willing to dip into my savings and even go into debt. the ACA is not perfect, but it is a good start and for the better of most Americans. I was a soldier once and was willing to give my life for this country. Now I'm willing to put my financial well-being in order to make progress for the overall good of the country. I wish that I could say to the Tea Party that they should be ashamed of themselves, but these individuals have shown that they have no shame. their ideology, ego and ignorance surpass any measure. Otherwise, personally it is not all about not getting a paycheck, it is that the Tea Party is preventing me from going to work and doing a job that I love and that it is important for the country. I work hard every day and I proudly serve the people of the United States of America.
