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.

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%?

The automatic Gov't "due not call list" site is shut down due to the Gov't shut down. LOL.

"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'm under the impression that their system hasn't been all that successful either."

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?

And it is silly that museums are closed while workers are there.

The whole back pay issue isn't settled yet from what I have heard. And I know this because I know some government workers.

Also even if they do get back pay...when's it coming?

People have families to take care of and bills to pay.

Funny, those "poor government workers?" I live in Dayton, right near Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. All civilian employees were called back to work after 3 days off the job (which they got paid for). The day they were called back, a local food pantry set up on the base to supply food to those in need. About 500 people showed up to get food assistance, nearly all were civilian employees. Most everyone I know in private industry are capable of being off, without pay, for 3 days, and not have a need to seek food assistance.

The US Air Force Museum remains closed, yet their full staff is on the job, getting paid. So, why is the museum closed? Because an ineffective idiot living on Pennsylvania Avenue seeks to make the fact Congress doesn't want to give him a "blank check" as miserable as possible to America. Oh, Barry's favorite golf course at Andrews AFB remains open as well?

The gov't workers are all getting back pay so in reality they are getting paid vacations.

What I dont understand is why aren't you guys fighting for the government workers who are out of a paycheck.

Oh thats right. You hate them don't you?

You guys wanted this shutdown because you thought it would rally people to your cause. Instead it has been a colossal flop for the GOP.

Not surprised at all. I mean you guys hate Obama care which I can understand.

But you had as your presidential candidate a man who brought a similar system in existence in the state that he governed!

What the heck?

And you guys were certain he was going to win!

HAHAHAHhAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Wrong!

And for you information there sport I am an independent.

All I am doing is calling out the idiocy of the right. I'll get to the left after the stupidity from the right is dealt with.

Which by the looks of it. The right is doing a fine job of shooting their own foot...or should I say face in reference to Shotgun Cheney.
