I'm not a federal employee, but I have friends who are. They won't be able to feed their children soon, and for what? Because a bunch of people are acting like schoolchildren, bickering and blaming each other? You get paid $174,000.00 a year. FOR WHAT? You have done the unthinkable and denied hundreds of thousands of American families their right to survive. Don't think I don't know that the 27th amendment protects YOUR paycheck. We should all know it. Who are you to take food out of our children's mouths while you collect an obscene amount of money for spiraling this once honorable country into a sea of debt, mistrust, and disrespect? You don't have the honor or integrity to even call yourself an American. Men and women have died to protect our freedom from foreign entities yet we are here being starved by our own government. It's careless and childish, and you need to get your act together. All we are asking is that you do your job. Earn that $174K a year that you so rightly deserve. You've made yourself a higher class and we as Americans should be considered equal. You represent nothing that our forefathers created and fought so hard to protect.
