Good of country must come first
I just watched a news program where a Republican Congressman said it really didn't matter if the government shut down as any lost pay would be retroactive so it would be nothing more than a paid vacation for those government employees who will be furloughed. This attitude is despicable -- so many Americans live paycheck to paycheck, thanks to the Congress not passing a jobs bill. Even a few days without pay can be devastating for a family that relies on receiving their paychecks on time. Interesting to me is the fact that Jim DeMint has more power over Republicans than John Boehner. The fact that these very wealthy foundations threaten a primary fight if there is any disagreement with their philosophy is flat scary to me. It's time to stand up for democracy. The Republicans who hate Obama so much need to get over themselves and start thinking about the good of the country and not their wealthy donors.
