Shutdown over: What next?
Senator, Would You Buy Our Groceries?
Please, end this shutdown, NOW. The very last thing any of the people in as financially poor shape as we are need is for the SNAP program to shut down entirely. It was unfortunate enough when you cut the funding for the SNAP program by $40 Billion last year, we Need that and the WIC program to SURVIVE. It is hard enough to feed a family of 7 on $426 a month, but we have sucked it up,tightened our belts another notch and managed as well as we could. But, if this shutdown continues, Millions of people will Starve Thanks to You. So, both parties need to get their heads out of their butts, get the 800,000 federal workers back working again, and make sure that while they are sitting down playing tiddlywinks, half of their country isn't starving to death! The vast majority of the populace of this country are have-nots, we are the ones who vote you into office, look after your People Not Your POCKETS!
