Your thoughts: Government shutdown

  • Members of Congress will still get paid, as mandated by the 27th Amendment
  • Thousands of federal workers have been furloughed and will lose pay in the shutdown
Your thoughts: Government shutdown

The government shutdown is now in Day 2.  And a growing number of Americans are crying out, ‘what on Earth has our government turned into?”  We love hearing your thoughts on this.  Are you fed up with the shutdown? Are you outraged?  Or do you think the shutdown is necessary?  What about the fact that politicians still get paid during a shutdown while many Americans are sent home with no pay or with IOU’s?

Here are some of your comments and questions but we want to hear more from you. Tweet your thoughts to @Jvelezmitchell or post them to our Facebook page
