'My bills don't get shut down': Furloughed federal workers in KC protest shutdown

Furloughed federal employees protested the government shutdown in front of the IRS offices in Kansas City Thursday, the day before most would miss their first paycheck.

For many, the main message was that they want to return to work and get paid. The rally joined others held across the country by furloughed federal workers.

In Kansas City, idled workers generally agreed to talk if they were identified only by their first names.

“My bills don’t get shut down,” said Latosha, a furloughed IRS employee at the rally.

1. Remember trump said

:We need a good shutdown ", and he now could care less about the harm its doing to the American people, and is selling this as a security issue when its not, its for him to get more powers by claiming a national emergency with. He can then repeat that and use it as his weapon as he pleases without opposition of any kind. HE's hired illegals, providing them with phony green cards at his properties, and without background checks , but wants people to believe its a crisis when it clearly isn't. Its not just 800 K federal employees hurt, its the whole nation. This is just the tip of the ice berg if he's allowed to terrorize us all like this, and he'll get a lot more cruel with his tactics against us using this as a weapon. Republicans chances are gone in 2020 now because of trump and their backing him bow, and this proves they learned nothing from the Mid term results. 2020 will be the greatest election disaster this country's ever seen for them, and its getting closer every day.
