So this afternoon, Congress once again failed at the one job they have. To come together and provide a government for the U.S. that is in the best interest of the ENTIRE country... Not the Democrats, not the Republicans, not the white, male majority, nor one of the many minorities that help make this country great, but the ENTIRE United States of America.
Once again a portion of our government is coming to a standstill, basically because of the immigration clemency granted by President Obama. Over the past several years, these shutdowns have cost us millions of wasted dollars and helped make us the laughing stock of the entire world.
This time, the shutdown is effecting the Department of Homeland Security, including FEMA, and TSA to name just a couple. Parts of our government that we cannot afford to shut down. All while Congress continues to collect a paycheck.
This constant lack of ability for our representatives to come together and actually work together to move this country forward instead of just fighting the other party HAS to come to an end. What happened to doing what is in the best interest of the country, not just your party to win votes in the next election.
Personally, I am so tired of these situations. How sad that our government has come to this point that the party is put before the country. I say we fire them all... and re-elect no-one in 2016. Time for a new direction, but then again, maybe I'm just being Frank!!
