This is pathetic. What should be the most powerful nation in the world, The world leader of leaders, and yet they refuse to show leadership and put an end to this Shutdown. This could end if Speaker of the House, Rep. John Boehner would bring a clean Continuing Resolution(CR) to the floor for a vote. Behind closed doors there has been reports that there is enough votes for a clean (CR) to pass. The problem is, for fear of losing his job, Rep. John Boehner will not bring a clean (CR) to the floor to appease the 40 to 80 so called Tea Party Republicans. While they continue with the Shana-gins, Hundreds of thousands of Americans are out of work while another million Federal employees are working without pay.
You may think you are not touched by this game of politics. But ask yourself, do you have family members on Social Security? Is someone in your family a retired service member? Do you know anyone in a nursing home that is on Medicare? Or how about this question, how safe do you feel with our CIA, FBI, NSA, and Homeland Security are working at bare minimums while possible sleeper cell terrorist walk among us, looking for a lax in security to make their move?
This Shutdown was stupid and is not in favor of the American people, but in favor of big business, the pocket liners of the politician. Please tell us what you think.
