Politics at all costs, especially those costs borne by you and me the tax payer. The two party system is so partisan that now the republicans vote in a monolithic block, with no so much as a single member crossing the aisle to vote his or her conscience. Which leaves us with policy that does not reflect what is best for the American people, but rather what is best for the powers that be that fund the lobbyist who pocket the vote of the elected representative you and I count on to lead the way. Not now and probably never again.

Much ado about nothing. Wall Street does not want a govt shutdown as it would disrupt their money-gouging operations. Repubs are currently marching in lockstep, but when push comes to shove they won't bite the hand that feeds them, and several will follow Obama's lead 'for the betterment of the country'. Right now they're following an ideological agenda that has them looking silly in the public's eyes.

The politicians in Washington remind me of two children on the play ground fighting over something stupid. To think that Washington politics has lead us to this point in history, broke. Maybe we need to rethink term limits for these crafty politicians. Clean house of the old guys who do nothing but line their own pockets and dont give a damn about the working women and men who pay them their salaries.
