Government Shutdown

BY Jeff Simpson

Rachel Maddow breaks down the Government Shutdown in detail

Some takeways;

1.  There has been NO significant legislation passed since Boehner/Cantor/Ryan have taken over the house!

Maddow also mocked Rep. John Culberson (R-TX), who invoked the 9/11 rallying cry, “Let’s roll,” during a gleeful meeting with party mates about pushing for a delay on the Affordable Care Act.
“Let’s roll – let’s bring the U.S. government to its knees,” Maddow said sarcastically. “Just like on 9/11. Except the other way.”

  1. Yes. Besides not being capable of governance, GOP legislators are either looney tunes or sociopaths as are the people who vote them in.

  2. How do we have these people removed from office and charged with Treason! Seriously, they have declared they would do this and now they have, this is treason, it wasn't because they tried to compromise, they tried not to.

    1. Just have them tarred and feathered

  3. Ask anyone of those Tea Party Republican bastards if they had any problem cashing their paychecks while those who work for them do not get paid? Major freakin' disconnect.

  4. As has been suggested at other blogs, a strong POTUS has the authority to deem all government services vital and essential therefore thwarting this current shutdown. I am not holding my breath.
