Thoughts On The Government Shutdown

As of this evening, the government shutdown is over.

A bill has been signed to keep the government open for a few more weeks.

Is it me or did this spectacle feel like it was more akin to feuding siblings pointing fingers at each other, trying to blame the other for the broken toy rather than adult lawmakers trying to run a country?

As anyone who has ever been in an argument will tell you, pointing fingers never works. Unfortunately, that is all the members of the House and Senate seem to have been doing for three days.

Also, did anyone else notice that while government workers (including members of our military) were not paid for the last three days, the members of the House and Senate were?

I could go on, but I will let the ladies of The View take it from here:

P.S.

Did anyone else see the videos on their social media pages of you know who saying that during the last government shutdown in 2013, that the President should take the blame? Not only he is a snake oil, used car salesman, but he is also a hypocrite. He refused to owe up to his part in the government shutdown, but yet in 2013, he said then President Obama, because he was President, needed to step up.

I think I would define that as the pot calling the kettle black….

    Loved the video – reminded me of our House of Commons.
