Eshoo's getting paid while these guys suffer. Least she could do would be donate to a charity willing to help these poor guys, or the group running the cancelled blood drive.

Anna Eshoo's staff is drawing pay but my NASA contractor spouse is using up sick days. WTF?
The thing about this shutdown is you can't cherry-pick what's important and what's not. Clinical trials, weddings at Yosemite, and NASA interns are not important but the Army-Navy football game and congressional offices are?
If you want a government shutdown, tea partiers, then shut the whole damn thing down.
Have a business trip or vacation planned? Sorry, the flight controllers are at home watching tv. Airports are closed and all domestic and international travel to the US has been cancelled.
Waiting for an important letter or package? Sorry, the post office is closed.
Wondering what the weather will be this weekend? Sorry, the national weather service is down, you'll have to look outside.
Secret Service is at home, so Obama is holed up in the White House, cooking dinner and washing clothes for the family.

But Anna Eshoo is not the one who closed down the government. Remember that!
However, I am all for a law that states if the Govn't does not pass a budget, the Congress stops getting paid. Let's start a Change.org about that
