My husband has been a hard-working federal employee for 20 years and we have dealt with multiple shutdowns with missed paychecks and financial hardship over the years. Enough with the partisan dysfunction! We have 5 children to care for. Congress should be held accountable if they do not do the job that they are paid well to do -- fund the federal government!

Time for a major change in this country. George Washington warned us that a two party system was going to be a problem for this nation. If we keep voting for "the party" we will keep getting poorly qualified candidates battling each other for a leadership position that neither should have. Congress, DO YOUR JOB! And not by your stated party position but by what is right for our country. Live up to your oaths and realize you represent those that voted for you AND those that did not.

This is absurd.

A government shutdown, even a temporary one, would further the economic woes that all of us are facing. It is imperative that our Congressmen reach a budget decision. Otherwise, let's vote them out next election.

There is no reason to put your party ahead of this country. Defaulting and shutting down the government has a very negative impact on our security and financial rating. There is no good reason why you cant reach an agreement on a budget. We all recognize that we need to cut spending and improve this country. Work TOGETHER and get this done!. We elect you guys and expect you to do what is best for us, not what suits your party agenda. Stop being loyal to your party agenda and start doing your job which is working for the good of the American people....

Shut downs are not how you balance a budget.

Shutdowns suck, and so do those who cause them.

Just like kindergarteners, we all have to learn to get along & work together. No one ever gets their own way all the time. If the government shuts down, our representatives should be the first in line Not to recieve a paycheck, until they can figure out a solution for the sake of our military and those who show up daily who aren't voted in. Please start working together!

We deserve better

A shutdown would disrupt the essential services and programs that countless Americans rely on.

It is rediculous that we the people have go through this every few months. I can't decide to stop paying my house payment every few months--so do your job!!!!!

Either I do my job or I'm fired.
Should be the same. Get the job done.
Stop printing money. Balance the budget.
Get rid of the debt.
That does not belong to our children.
