The claim that they worry about the soldiers in the field because of the shutdown is laughable and hypocritical; in 2013, they forced a government shutdown with the same impact this shutdown has. What happened in 2013? Was there not any soldier in the field?
For decades now Republican Legislators in Washington have proven time and again to have no concern whatsoever about the country, not even about their supporters. They’ve always sided with their own selfish interest, irrespective of the cost to The People. The shutdown helps to put in display their callousness.
