We just turned off the news in our house.
We are already, just a few days into it, sick of the rhetoric. The brinkmanship of 80 members of the House of Reps, whipped by the BS of one Alfonso Cruz (that’s what I am calling him–no “Ted” on this blog) is, among a slew of other distasteful things, denying 800,000 federal employees their paychecks, shutting down the WIC program, and closing the national parks. AND they are still getting paid while doing this.
One does not get to hold the US government hostage, and then whine that the other side is failing to negotiate. The time to negotiate on the ACA was when it was a bill. The time to eliminate it as unconstitutional was when the law was reviewed and judged by the SCOTUS.
Stay strong, President Obama and members of the senate. I can tell you right now who will get my vote in 2014 and who will not.
As for the suicide caucus, impeach those bastards. Impeach every last one of them.
