I just want to say that I am paying attention, and taking names, and taking a vow. I will NEVER vote for any ticket that is made up of any republican currently in the US House of Representatives. Ever. What they have done is criminal. This is a huge impact on so many people (but they apparently think not on them) that will go on far into the future. If they won’t take responsibility for their actions, then I will help them.
On the plus side: I thought our president was eloquent on the radio last night – It is irresponsible of Congress to not pay the bills it has incurred, and Affordable Health Care is a different issue, which has been voted on what? 43 times? Reviewed by the US Supreme Court? Get over it. Even McCain said that.
Also on the plus side: My state is represented by people who seem to be able to see the forest and the trees on this issue. I liked what Senator Collins (R) had to say about the shut down (prior to) and I don’t even have to check the voting records to know how our representatives voted.
But I am really steamed at more than 200 people from other states right now. Wish I could vote in all of their next elections.
