A federal Park Service Ranger admitted being ordered to make life as difficult as possible in order to make Americans feel the most pain as a result of the partial government shutdown brought about by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's refusal to work with Republicans on a plan to fund the government while not funding or delaying parts of Obamacare, the Washington Times reported Thursday.
“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can," an angry Park Ranger told the Times. "It’s disgusting.”
According to the Times, the Park Service has been shutting down streets "on mere whim and caprice."
Rangers closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, the plantation home of George Washington, even though the park is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
