Cattle ranchers who favored shutdown don’t like what they wished for
I guess they hadn’t counted on THIS:
South Dakota ranchers, who were in favor of the government shutdown, are now bemoaning the fact that the shutdown means no federal assistance following a devastating early blizzard that wiped out much of their livestock.
What’s worse is that the ranchers don’t sound like they’ve changed their minds about the shutdown.
Rather, they think that their welfare checks from the government are the only good the government actually does. So while the rest of the government should still be shut down for you and me, we should make an exception for them.
