Bush Delivers Pizza To Secret Service Agents Forced To Work Unpaid During Shutdown: It’s Time To ‘End This Shutdown’





Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura Bush, delivered pizzas to Secret Service agents working without pay on Friday.

“@LauraWBush and I are grateful to our Secret Service personnel and the thousands of Federal employees who are working hard for our country without a paycheck,” the former president wrote in an Instagram post Friday afternoon.

Bush then called for lawmakers “on both sides” to end the ongoing partial government shutdown.




“And we thank our fellow citizens who are supporting them. It’s time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown,” he added.

Former presidents and first ladies receive lifetime Secret Service protection.

Roughly 800,000 federal employees have been furloughed or forced to work without pay as the shutdown continues with no end in sight.
