Because in all truth, the government shut down was all of our employees fault. There are 545 people sitting in office that are worried about one thing....who can come out on top. None are truly worried about any of the people or any other cause, they all say what they think we want to hear. Truth is, they could all sit down and get a whole lot accomplished if they truly had the people of this countries future lives in their concern, but the only concern they have is just getting their next paycheck for sitting there accomplishing absolutely nothing. And that is the hard core facts of it all. What party they belong to has nothing at all to do with any of it. They are all just a bunch of boys and women in adult bodies playing power games. The people and their true welfare is at the very bottom of the list. It should be about time for this game to come to its end and the people take back the country. The polititions work for us, don't you think is time they started earning that pay, or time to get out of office?
