'Congress, get your buns in gear!'

  • It's Day 7 of the government shutdown, and anger, frustration is building
  • Toddler belts out shutdown song from car seat
  • People hold signs expressing frustration at several national monuments

Buzzfeed went to some of the most popular national monuments to get reaction from people who were turned away by barriers and signs simply saying "CLOSED." Lynn Berry spoke to Buzzfeed reporter Benny Johnson about the project.
