Congress gets free ride in shutdown impacts

info@islandpacket.comOctober 10, 2013 

Who's to blame for the mess this country is presently in and who should be financially penalized? Not the furloughed government employees.

Our Congress is making these decisions affecting the people they serve, not themselves. Why are they exempt? I bet if this decision to be financially penalized were applied to Congress, a solution would be found with a way to start turning this country around. Vote for whom?
