Letter: Contact government leaders with your disapproval of the shut-down

Shut-down is unacceptable

Oct. 1, 2013, I sat here completely baffled as to how our elected officials could let this government shut-down occur. I would expect that if the shut-down affected their wallets like it might affect our wallets, this shut-down would have been averted months ago.

I think the time is now for all tax payers to contact whoever they can to let these so-called “leaders” know how much this shut-down could affect their lives. It is time to let them know we don’t approve of voting party lines, or all of the bickering between parties; this accomplishes nothing.

This country was based upon the premise, by the people and for the people, but this seems to have been lost in time.
