Furloughed: Hour 383   Leave a comment

Just a little over one hour short of 16 full days since I received my furlough letter, I am headed back to work.  Much to my surprise, Todd Young did vote in favor of the bill.  I don’t know if he really felt like he was doing the right thing or just felt the pressure of default.  In either case, it’s probably asking too much for him to reach out directly to the people he’s hurt tremendously in the last 16 days.  Even though Federal employees will get back pay for the lost time, many others have permanently lost income during this time.  I don’t think anything Todd thinks he and his friends have ‘gained’ through this process is worth what we’ve had to endure.  I sincerely hope that the people of his district keep this in mind next November.
