It's very clear that our government doesn't care about us. No one's really speaking for the veterans who faught for this country . My husband is a disabled veteran. I am on a heart transplant list and am currently on a home heart monitor. Unlike the government workers, even though they have been furloughed, which is horrible in itself, but at least they can work. People like disabled veterans and their families who also have disabilities can't. We are left on the stove. The Department of Veterans Affairs hasn't sent out any network information to help v.a families in need in case the worse happens. Where do we go if we can't pay our rent or mortgage? Will car dealerships give us a deferred payment because of the shutdown? No one seems to care that we are basically being slapped in our faces! This is sending a message to future military enlistees. They will see that our government won't take care of their families who served our country, so why would the government expect them to enlist to serve the country that won't take care of them when they fight and become disabled. I guess the draft may be coming back! Veterans can have alot of influence on our youth when it comes to joining the military. I am not afraid of a foreign terrorist. I'm afraid of the political crooks who who run our country. They are cutting off my income, and making me homeless. Impeachments should be handed out to those who have done this to my family and other americans!
