Protesting the budget shutdown – Warrensburg, Missouri – October 9, 2013 (October 9, 2013)

From 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. this evening during “rush hour” in Warrensburg, at the corner of Maguire and Business 50, six individuals picketed against the federal government shutdown.

Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) was one of fifty republican members of the House to sign a letter stating that Social Security should

be part of the debt/budget/fiscal negotiation process. Interestingly, Social Security does not contribute to the deficit or debt.

A supporter. The pickets’ signs will probably end up on social media, you know, like Twitter or Instagram.

In the hour that the group picketed they were greeted with supportive horn honking and “thumbs up”. There was a much smaller number of negative comments, including one person who yelled that “[Representative] Vicky [Hartzler (r)] was doing the right thing.” On occasion, when traffic was stopped at the light, the pickets engaged in conversations with drivers and passengers. One individual asked “Who’s Vicky?”

Probably not too concerned about the federal government shutdown or approaching the debt ceiling.
