Day 11: Federal Employees Held Hostage
News outlets are reporting a slight glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Seems the GOP is responding to polls suggesting they are now less popular than broccoli by lowering their demands to a “fig leaf” so they “have something to show their constituents for the shutdown.” So they’ve threatened the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of us so they can get a “fig leaf?” Well, here’s a reminder; Adam and Eve covered themselves with fig leaves because they were ashamed. So, harkening back to the beginning of this mess and the loutish Mr. Neugebauer, Republicans, you should be ashamed.
