Air travelers start to feel effects of government shutdown

Look I hate the Orange idiot as much as the next suburban dem who voted to oust an incumbent republican congressman this past November. This shutdown is perhaps the most thoughtless thing in American legislative history. But I’m hardly rich or of the richest, I worked hard for my education and career. I fly from time to time; comes with the career. Am I not allowed to be upset about not getting home to see my family, god forbid, or missing out on opportunities to further support them by not being able to travel? No more so than the TSA worker that’s being screwed by the shutdown? Connected travel is a big part of our economy and the well being of millions of Americans and our families...perhaps you may reconsider this blanket statement?
