It sounds like satire. However, for Joyce and Ralph Spencer the story is all too real. Joyce is 77, Ralph, her husband, is 80. They’ve owned their Lake Mead home in Las Vegas, Nevada since the 1970s.
Last Thursday park rangers arrived at the elderly couple’s home and forced them to leave. Their home sits on federal lands. Even though the Spencer’s have owned their home for more than 4 decades, the park ranger told them they could not return until a budget was passed.
“I had to be sure and get his walker and his scooter that he has to go in,” Mrs. Spencer said of her husband Ralph. She also forgot to get his jeans and undershirts, so she is having to go into town to purchase more for him.
The Spencer’s protest that they own the property and they should be allowed in- shutdown or not.
KTNV reports that the couple is spending most of their time at the local ice cream shop and are staying with family members who live nearby.
The Federal Government remains partially shutdown due to Senate democrats’ and President Obama’s unwillingness to negotiate with republicans on the president’s struggling healtcare law, better known as Obamacare.
