More proof that D.C. is a mess! Maybe the government needs to be shut down! Republicans take a stand and the President calls it grandstanding! My friend Dan of AM 730 KDAZ was talking this morning in favor of the government shutting down. The President and Congress does not do the people’s business anyhow! It’s the worst Congress and President in our history! What do you think? I think we need more Ted Cruz’s and Steve Pearce’s. President Barack Obama today called on House Republicans to stop “political grandstanding” and pass legislation to avoid a looming government shutdown without cuts to his healthcare law or other conditions.
“Over the next three days, House Republicans will have to decide whether to join the Senate and keep the government open or shut it down because they can’t get their way on an issue that has nothing to do with deficit,” the president said in a statement to reporters at the White House.
“I realize that a lot of what’s taking place right now is political grandstanding, but this grandstanding has real effects on real people,” Obama said.
Washington is bracing for the possibility of a partial shutdown of operations on Tuesday as Congress struggled to pass an emergency spending bill that Republicans want to use to defund Obama’s healthcare reform law.
A poll awhile back showed that Americans ranked a root canal and cockroaches above Congress.
