Letter: Reckless indifference

I am furious! Members of Congress are much worse than spoiled children. In fact, they are behaving with reckless indifference at best, criminal negligence at worst. The consequences at stake are dire, and I don’t like being used as a pawn over an ideological game of chicken.

We should sue all the major players in this fiasco for interfering with our economy, depriving us of our right to enjoy public parks, delaying services to disabled veterans, disrupting our abilities to earn a living, damaging our international reputation and willfully causing the downgrading of our credit rating resulting in the loss of business, trade, profit, etc. And what about that ridiculous photo op with Republicans seated at a table with four empty chairs? Did they think it was so powerful when Clint Eastwood did it that it might be four times more effective?

Every person who is spotlighted in this tragedy will face public wrath in the next election: I guarantee that every American will remember and vote them out with great delight.

Now Obama trying to block people from looking at Mt. Rushmore (seriously) Posted by William A. Jacobson

“There is really nothing complicated about the facts. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted all the money required to keep all government activities going -- except for ObamaCare. This is not a matter of opinion. You can check the Congressional Record. As for the House of Representatives' right to grant or withhold money, that is not a matter of opinion either. You can check the Constitution of the United States. All spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives, which means that Congressmen there have a right to decide whether or not they want to spend money on a particular government activity. “
