So I am late on this bill, not because I didn’t see it in time, but because I was thinking long and hard about it. I am a proud son of an ez-Marine, friend to multiple Vets and current service members in the Marines, Army/National Guard, and Navy; husband to a teacher who’s school runs on support from the government; debtor to the Federal government through student loans. After long and painful deliberation, this government (which is the combination of the past 4 administrations (Bush and Obama)) has outlived itself. The books are not balanced, the socialist programs created by the past 2 administrations have dwarfed the output of the past two Presidencies combined (Bush Jr and Clinton) in spending programs that have a long lasting effect on the economy. They say no one gets paid...well I’d like to really see them act on that. Once the government reopens, back pay is issued, therefore, no pay was ever lost. EVER. So reduce the government, stop paying farmers to not grow crops, abolish Obamacare, and for crying out loud, do the job you were elected to do. Govern within the framework of the United States Constitution as it was written, not as it is interpreted.
