I am a concerned parent of two, and feel as though this entire country is hurting as a whole. There needs to be a budget voted on as soon as possible. Even though Congress knew the had to make the budget, but failed to do so because they want to act like 3 year olds. I feel for the parents with small children and is not able to go to work, or pay their bills because the government shutdown because some of the Republican Party is upset because they could not get their way. How are people going to pay their bills? When they have to pay a mortgage or rent, nobody wants to hear that because the government prevented them from working, so they do not have the necessary money to pay their bills. This shutdown is selfish, childish, and excuse me for saying this but stupid. How can you just say that government employees are not going to receive payments when Congress is still receiving payment. This is unfair because Congress is classified as government employees. The Obamacare was already voted in, there is a budget for it. There are many people out there with conditions that prevent them from having health insurance. I watched the interview last night on CNN, and the question was ask. Newit Greenwich basically said that because 30 million people is not able to use it right away, they do not want it in. There is 3 times as much people in the U.S. that needs this insurance. Also how can you open up museums and parks, but do not want to open the budget for the Pre-K Program for early education. Education is more important than a park. I would also like to say that if this shutdown continues, it is going to make American people more and more angry, and when election time comes, there may be a lot of Republicans that may not be voted back in. I would finally like to say that how can you ask the President to negotiate when both sides have to do it. The Republican Party that is holding things up, need to give in on something for there to be a proper negotiation instead of having a tantrum like children because they are not able to get what they want.
