Shutdown stunk

like a skunk

Go back to the minor leagues Bernie Madoff. You’ve been replaced by a much better scam artist than you could ever have imagined. That’s right, it’s called The United States Government and the people of the United States of America are the victims.

Are you kidding me? A government shutdown and the best that they could come up with is continued roll-out of the worst piece of legislation in history (Obamacare), back-door payoff deals (Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid), and no debt ceiling (open checkbook). People, we’d better wake up and smell the coffee!

U.S. Reps. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul took a lot of heat during the shutdown for trying to make changes. We should all take a look at our representatives and see if they are looking out for themselves and their re-election campaign or are they just padding their own pockets? Check the history of your representative’s voting habits and see if they stand for big government or do they actually care about the people. Only we can decide the direction our country should be taking. Right now, I’m inclined to believe the government is nothing but a “Good ‘Ol Boys Club” and business as usual. I believe we need a change right now!
