On a different note, I feel it's already harming mine by being held hostage in a federal government building being made to work & not get paid. Don't even get me started on the stress of having to amend all this time & leave once everything is sorted out!

Of course, the Faux Newz network calls this a "slim down" - as in, no WIC food, no Head Start meals, no food inspection... Watching these morons screw the country has raised my blood pressure.

Thank-you for this article. The "shutdown" IS hurting millions of people---all done by a few STUPID PEOPLE---for their own gain. BAD--BAD--BAD---We need to VOTE them OUT of office in 2014.
