A group from UK's Young Democrats want the shutdown to end, and stood outside Congressman Andy Barr's office to send their message.

A handful of students stood outside the office, asking for a vote to end the shutdown, and asking the Congressman not to toe the Republican party line.

"In congress right now we're seeing a lot of immaturity, a lot of finger pointing and name calling instead of people standing up and actually doing something, and that's what we'd like to see Congressman Barr do," said Grace Wise, UK Young Democrats President.

In a statement Andy Barr says people are always welcome at his office.  Barr's spokesperson says the Congressman is working with his colleagues across the aisle to get the government up and running.
