U.S. government is 'open for business'
government shut down
Hello, who am I well technically Im no one, Im just a horse trainer, proud mother of three beautiful children but Im also the proud wife of a Very Proud Marine. Our government has forgotten three words, WE THE PEOPLE. A very simple term, but the most important part (in my opinion) of the constitution. I know countless military and civilian employees that will not be able to feed there families if not paid, even if they miss one pay check. You see, while our Politicians bicker over the budget, we all worry if our car payments will be paid and if our families will have groceries. my husband does the same job my fathers does the difference is he makes 30k a year and fights for our country, my father makes triple digits. My husband doesnt complain, he is proud to serve. But my question is this how can our government ask the essential personell to continue to fight in war torn countries and contiue here at home when they arent paid, how are they to focus on coming home alive when there families may not have groceries or gas in there cars? This is realisticly whats gonna happen if our politician dont wake up and stop being so selfish. How many spouses of politicans have designer clothes, fly on private jets, or go to day spas. Stop bickering over selfish reasons remember you are our politicians are suppose to be here for us! The People.Our country bailed out states, and that was great I guess, but take California for example, raised funding for the bullet train but has yet to break ground for it, why not cancel that project and put the money back into the deficiet. Why cant we find the un-necessary spending and say hey lets stop this for our people? Wake up Congress and Mr President put your selves really in our shoes.Those of us that dont have private chefs, or limo drivers, or nanies to care for our children while we are at the mall or dayspa. Remember that our nations first leader wanted what is best for us THE PEOPLE, not what was best for themselves.
