Shutdown over: What next?
Two Feds + Two Kids + Many Bills = TROUBLE
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Now they face homelessness because their step-father works for Homeland Security (TSA) and their mother works for Social Security. We have zero income right now all and I don't know how I will pay bills let alone buy food. We are both essential employees which means we have to be at work or face reprimand or even being fired. The media is so caught up in all the furloughed workers. The people that really have it bad are the ones that have to figure out how to afford money to commute to work as well as childcare all while not getting a paycheck. My children have been through so much already in their short little lives, they shouldn't have to endure this as well. Having to explain to your children why they can't go to tutoring right now, or why they can't get a Halloween costume or pumpkin, or why they can't attend a friend's birthday party all because of this nonsense in Washington is horrible. They might not get the Social Security check from their survivor's benefits either if the debt ceiling isn't raised. :( So NOT RIGHT!
