The government

Shut down. Again.

The Republicans are pitiful. Ted Cruz is just insane. Truly, there are not enough words to describe his selfish, narcissistic misdirection.

Michele Bachmann is "giddy" and said “I think the reason is because President Obama can’t wait to get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care.” As the shutdown approached, she also said, "It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.” I hope all the people who elected these loons feel just great about how those officials are really looking out for the welfare of their populace.

If I hear one more time about repealing the Affordable Care Act, I'm going to consider throwing a tantrum.

This is gross and despicable and is going to negatively affect so many people who are just trying to work hard and live their lives. The Republicans should be ashamed. Offering a 45 day delay in shutting down the government for repealing the ACA, allowing the Keystone XL, etc is not negotiation and Reid et al were right not to acknowledge that pathetic offering as such.
