Is anyone else fed up with the U.S. House of Representatives and these incorrigible Tea Party Republicans? Can no one else understand that government shutdowns cannot be allowed to become a loaded gun in the hands of any party faction that cannot get its way within the normal framework established in a democratic political system?

A minority element of the House is willing to choke the rest of the country to death, including their own constituents, for a victory. Do I need to remind you that this shutdown does not have any personal repercussions on any member of Congress?


They are getting paid quite well to transfer all the sacrifices to us. We must remove every professional politician from Congress or risk economic collapse. Remember how long this Great Recession lasted and how weak the recovery has been.


Are any of you willing to risk a repeat caused by the faulty logic of these dysfunctional politicians? I can’t bring myself to call them representatives, because the only interests they represent are their own. If we return any of them to office in the upcoming elections, we are tacitly agreeing to these periodic episodes of uncertainty.
