I want to know if the swearing in vow of both House of Representatives and Senate membership involves attesting to misguiding and misleading the American public into believing that they are there to represent all of the people and not only those who want to shut our government down. Not only is the government threatened, but somehow they are holding the global economies hostage as well. It is disgraceful that the Republican/Tea Party feels it would be in the best interest of the majority of Americans to serve the needs of a minority who want to de-fund Obamacare, among other things. Why isn’t the minority of Congress willing to be law abiding citizens and why did they pick this moment in history to commit their criminal acts. After all, Obamacare is now the law, whether anyone likes it or not. You don’t change laws by shutting down the government. In California there are droves of uninsured people signing up for the insurance they’ve long been denied. That our fallen heroes’ families are not able to receive their much deserved death benefit payments is despicable. Who, in their right mind, could conscionably deny these and other benefits to the American people that worked, sacrificed and deserve them is beyond my ability to comprehend. Shame on you Republicans for playing chicken (and other games) with other people's lives. I hope America’s everyday peoples’ pain and suffering turns out to be worth the trials and tribulations you have heaped on them.
