Democrats willing to shut down government to keep Planned Parenthood funded

As a career federal employee who has served alongside the military in Iraq, I stoically but willingly accepted a two-year freeze on cost-of-living increases as part of my contribution to at least slowing the pace of the current spending spree in Washington.

With all the finger-pointing that's taken place over the past few weeks, one fact that has emerged is the fact that this President and the Democrats in Congress were willing to shut down the federal establishment and furlough me and hundreds of thousands of other federal workers in order to maintain the steady flow of my tax money to the likes of Planned Parenthood. Any federal employee (or, for that matter, any taxpayer) who isn't outraged by these warped priorities should undergo a sobriety test.
