Concerned shutdown hurts only some

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 17, 2013 

It makes me mad this government shutdown only shuts down the things that affect the middle class and lower class. They don't take away perks from the millionaire government higher ups. Several years ago on the Canadian news they said that 1 percent of American people are millionaires and 50 percent of our government workers are millionaires. The middle- and lower-class people work now and have worked all their lives to pay for the government millionaires. While they have a good time at our expense. Unfortunately it will never change because those same millionaires make the rules.
