INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A handful of Hoosiers took to the streets of Indianapolis to protest the government shutdown.
Carrying signs that said "Enough Already" and "Honk If You Agree Enough Already" the half dozen or so protestors chanted, "Do your job."
"It is just heartbreaking to think that our government is working so against the people," said Linda Porter. "This is the United States of America. Don't we treat each other better here?"
A national not-for-profit grass roots organization called Organizing For Action (OFA) was behind the protest.
OFA blames House Republicans for the shutdown which they say is sabotaging the economy and hurting American families.
But Republicans say they are following the will of the people and their constituents and are fighting a healthcare law that will hurt the nation and the economy.
A national poll suggests the majority of voters are against the shutdown.
The Quinnipiac University poll found 72 percent of American voters oppose Congress shutting down the federal government in order to block the implementation of Obamacare.
Employees at some Indianapolis fast food restaurants will take part in a 100-city strike Thursday morning.
Police dispatchers in Hancock County say two medical helicopters were called to the scene of a crash late Wednesday night.
SWAT members were called to the city's northwest side Wednesday night.
