2009 Reader Advisory Panel---Maggie Jackson
The government officials don’t care about the people they serve. They only care about themselves. Politicians are the master manipulators. The citizens are the master manipulated. During this government shutdown the people, the land, and the monuments have been used as pawns. They will continue to be used as pawns as long as possible because this whole shutdown is a huge game of chicken. It really does not matter who gets hurt as long as the people in power get what they want.
