I am a federal contractor who has worked in Washington, DC for 4 years now and I am furloughed. What's so troubling about the House Republicans willingness to shutdown the government without any remorse is the fact they are literally playing with people's lives. I have a real wife, five real children, real student loans, a real mortgage along with real everyday bills. How can House Republicans say they care for this country but purposely sabotage the lives of so many people without feeling the least bit ashamed. The true answer is they don't care. They don't care who gets hurt in this scuffle, just as long as they get what the extremist wing of the party wants, the repel of Obamacare. Congratulations House Republicans, you got what you wanted. You shutdown the United States government at the expense of my family! I hope you're happy.
