Members of Congress should not undermine the U.S. government

United States Congressmen should not threaten the existence of the United States government simply because those Congressmen do not like a program. It is the height of fiscal irresponsibility for a Congress to threaten to not pay debts that it has incurred because it does not like a program that it has created. Voters should pay closer attention to the behavior of their elected officials and ask themselves whether those officials really represent them, of if those officials are instead paid-for hires of immoral billionaires who spend their time shoving cocaine up their nostrils.

It is unfortunate that when both side come to an agreement on this current impasse and end the shutdown and pass a CR, the liberal media will force themselves to decide who “caved” and who did not. This would be the same media that up until the very last second of this impasse will deplore the fact that congress cannot compromise.

Freddie, the House passed funding bills to keep monuments open, Reid refused to bring them to the Senate floor for debate or a vote. Obama refused to sign them. So, who is responsible for shutting down these memorials?

IF we lacked the funding to keep them open, how in God's name was there funding to barricade them?

The actions of congressmen like the one from our 6th district, Mis Representation, are drawing the attention of investors in the bond market, Mr. Bell was concerned about world markets reactions, and Suzie Orman?, was telling people to pull money out of the bond market, so maybe ths bs is not only about ebt debit cards not workin'....Fox news poll says 60% of those asked think every member of congress should be replaced, are you payin attention billy boy, or are you still for the 1% of the 1%?

"But equating a state passing such a system to the Federal government ramming the same down our throats is a quite different thing, wouldn't you agree?"

Yes I would agree. But what does it say when something like that happens under a Republican governor?

Just proves that Romney had to be fluid in how he conducted himself in a liberal state.

I've heard the same.

The massive problem I see is the push and pull that is being worked on the people of this nation.

Ever took a paper clip and unbent it and worked it back and forth? It snaps and breaks apart doesn't it.

I say lets get rid of the bs on both sides.

How much more can this nation take before something bad happens?

And those town hall meetings were engineered by the corporate "grassroots" groups.

I dare say you would not have seen such a thing happen in those meetings had those corporate groups not set out to do what they did.

Of course the left is just as guilty. But coming from the opposite direction in regards to governments role in people's lives.

And they are run by the people. Not some wealth seeking schmuck.

thegreek you might want to dig into exactly where the policies the conservative voters champion are coming from.

Its no so grassroots in its origins.

It coming from a few wealthy individuals who want hardly no government at all and they also want private industry to take over most of what the government does.

Which really isn't a bad thing until you see there is a profit motive in everything they do.

The thing that makes government institutions preferable over privately run services etc is that those institutions are put there by the people for the people.

If anything, the right has been guilty of poorly articulating their position. I applaud their efforts to pare down a hugely inflated Federal budget.

As for the right supporting a guy who governed a state that had a health care law similar to Obamacare, Romney isn't the person who pushed such a law for his state. Add into the equation that any Republican serving as governor in a predominately liberal state is going to have to bend WAY to the left to be elected, or continue to serve. I'm under the impression that their system hasn't been all that successful either.

But equating a state passing such a system to the Federal government ramming the same down our throats is a quite different thing, wouldn't you agree?
