Shutdown over: What next?
Yes, the government shutdown has impacted me, a moderate Democrat. It's also impacted every single person in this country despite their political affiliation. By trying to hold the country hostage, the Tea Party, backed by Boehner and the Republican led House of Representatives have shown just how low they will sink to attempt at getting their way.
They always speak about how important it is not to spend money, yet every single day our government is shutdown, it costs just as much if not more than when the government is operational. They should be ashamed of themselves.
This country is on the brink of another civil war. Nope, it's not far fetched. There are so many completely crazy, racist haters from the far "right" (would better be called "wrong") that I'm not sure our country can stand another Republican loss at the polls when it comes time for the next Presidential election. Yet, they've almost certainly assured themselves of such a defeat.
Guess what Republicans? You're destroying the country you claim to love. To quote so many of you, love it or leave it.
