A group of federal workers who protested the government shutdown in downtown Denver Thursday afternoon said they have been through this before.
The protest came on Day 20 of the government shutdown, tying it for the second-longest in U.S. history. The longest was in 1995, when Democrat Bill Clinton served as president.
"I have a bit of savings, but that's not going to last very long," said Barbara Conklin, who works at the Environmental Protection Agency. "To have to dip into retirement accounts is not an option."
