Would anyone argue that during fed government shutdowns, Congresspersons officially continues on payroll but Military personnel don't?
shutdown won’t affect the politicians responsible for it.
Here are three groups of Americans who lose when the government shuts down..
Low-income kids in Head Start,these Head Start centers, which rely largely on federal money.
Military families and veterans ,the federal government provides a ton of services to them —everything from health care to education, housing,
recreation, and subsidized groceries.
Low-wage federal contractors,most of the janitors, security guards, and cafeteria servers who work in federal buildings
That means that Congress may continue to disrupt the lives of military families, poor children,and low-wage workers.
All in the name of American politics.
