With the GOP and the Tea Party spending so much time trying to repeal health care(41 times to date) for the people that can't afford it, the rest of the country's business, like the budget, has gone by the wayside! They want to shut down the government again to force the repeal of Obamacare, or is it Romneycare(I forget sometimes, they're so similar)! Who suffers? Not them, they still get their paychecks whereas the furloughed government employees will not! Whether you like government employees or not, they're still part of the overall employment picture in the country, in fact every country. You may not like how many there are but most are still needed to run the country, regardless of who is in the White House!
God bless America
Oh yes, don't forget Ted Cruz and his green eggs and ham filibuster? I guess that's what he thought it was. I think he just likes Dr. Seuss!
