I am for the shutdown and I support the GOP. It is about time somebody grew a pair and stood up for the American people! I am ex-military of 12 years so I sympathize for the families that are directly affected by the shutdown. If our government was doing the job they swore to do we would have never been in this situation in the first place. The President gave a speech using the suffering of the American people as leverage to push forward his agenda. This country has been limping on a broken economy and we Americans have been suffering for years. If suffering of the American people is the main concern why wasn’t something done much sooner. I am of the 67% of Americans that are living paycheck to paycheck who are struggling to put food on the table and I say keep the government shut down, miss the deadline on the 17th and default the budget. I am in debt and I have to choose between buying food or paying the bills. I have been in default for the past two years. This country needs a drastic change to move forward. Let the country go into default, declare bankruptcy, and start over! If you get the country and the people out of debt the economy will fix itself.
