    The hundreds of thousands of federal workers who have been furloughed are not connected to politics. It doesn’t matter whether there is a Republican sitting in the Oval Office or a Democrat. They work just as hard.

They are just innocent pawns who are being harmed by the grandstanding of power politics.
