UGH!!!! As I type this, the Government has been shut down for the last 10 days. What this means to most is nothing. They don’t see the people who are being hurt by this.
Government workers are on furlough. They aren’t working and they aren’t getting paid. However, they may get paid if the government opens back up.
Veterans — 5.18 million Disabled Veterans will not receive their disability payments or pension payment come November 1st if they don’t reinstate. This means those who depend on these paychecks will not have any money to live. This also effects those members of the military who are killed in action and the money given to family members, which we have already seen during recent news coverage. Just the tip of the iceberg where our military and veterans are concerned. It will next affect the Veteran’s Hospitals and health care, widow and orphans programs and more.
Elderly People — Those who are in receipt of Social Security are in danger of not receiving their November payments. Despite the fact that these retirees paid into the Social Security System, they are in danger of not having an income next month.
Food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, WIC, Kid Care and other government funded programs will suffer.
When is it okay to jeopardize the lives of the American People to “prove a point”? When is it okay for the President to turn a blind eye to the needs of the People? When is it okay for “WE THE PEOPLE” to be used as pawns in a pissing contest!!!? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! Put aside your differences and think about the people who elected you, who you promised to take care of, who put their confidence in you by supporting you.
It does not matter what the political affiliation is, the people of this nation are in jeopardy of government collapse. What happens when the government collapses? What happens when we lose everything? I don’t want to see this nation destroyed!
Get it together people!!! I’ve done a lot of praying to God and I am hoping that he will be able to straighten this mess out!
