Ad Feedback

The Obama administration is forcing a senior couple out of their home because it sits on federal property.

Joyce Spencer is 77 years old and her husband Ralph is 80.

The couple has owned their cabin on Nevada's Lake Mead, a national recreation area, since the 1970s.

Several of these kinds of stories related to the government shutdown have people shaking their heads. Is the Obama administration winning the public relations war? David Christensen, with the Family Research Council, talks about this and more, on CBN Newswatch, Oct. 8.

According to KTNV in Las Vegas, park officials last week ordered them to move out.

The officials say as long as the government is shut down, no one is allowed to stay overnight on park property.

Cabins on Lake Mead are considered vacation homes and residents are required to have another residence.

The Spencers are staying with relatives.
