GREENSBORO, N.C. - Calling all congressional leaders: your constituents have something to say.
As the government shutdown enters day three, voters in Greensboro and Winston-Salem lined up to send video messages to their representatives and senators.
"To all you politicians out in Washington, we put you in office and voted for you to benefit the people but instead, you're hurting us with your one-sided politics and arguing," explained Greensboro resident, Janay Johnston.
"I'd just like to say that I go to work every day and do my job and I expect the Congress to do theirs," said a Winston-Salem resident.
"I just want to tell you that you need to do your job. If you don't do your job, we will wait it out as long as you do but rest assured, next November, someone else, we will elect someone else who will do your job," said a Winston-Salem resident.
"I think it's a tragedy and a shame that we send these people to Washington to represent us and do our bidding and we have to endure all the things we have to endure because they can't cooperate with each other. I cannot understand why they are so adamant and so stubborn in their positions while all along it affects ordinary Americans and I wish they really would just think about us for a change," said Charles Cole, a Greensboro resident.
"It's unconscionable that anyone who would say and I mean you politicians, anyone who would say that you're about jobs and then you furlough thousands of American workers, honest men and women, have no place in office," said another Winston-Salem resident.
This shutdown has closed congressional offices and some lawmakers have even shut down their website.
