Langston column: Grandstanding politicians hurt huge number of federal workers

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 have no power to decide whether funding for a wall is awarded or withheld. Nor did they have a say on any of the other issues that have been the excuse for government shutdowns in past administrations. They are just innocent pawns who are being harmed by the grandstanding of power politics.
