Sophia Hernandez

student, Davis:

“They  should put aside their differences and think about what’s best for the country as a whole.”

Nancy Ly

student, Davis:

“One  person should  just make a decision. Compromising isn’t going anywhere.”

Andy Rathbone

business owner, Dixon:

“They should shut down Congress and the Senate and deny them pay, just like they’re denying other government workers pay.”

James  Armstrong

retired, Sacramento:

“They need to go back to 1860 where the only dealings we had with the federal government was the post office. Americans can be self-reliant if they’re given the chance.”

Gurdeep Johal

student, Davis:

“The Democrats and Republicans aren’t right every time. Both of the parties need to agree with each other’s decisions.”

Emily Kappes

student, Davis:

“Put aside the party politics.”
