I read your editorial stating the fault of the shutdown lies with the Republicans in the House of Representatives.
How about the Democratic Party, filled with people like Harry Reid and Nancy (“we have to pass the Obamacare bill so we’ll know what’s in it”) Pelosi? How about the president, who steadfastly refused to discuss the shutdown in good faith?
How about electing some adults for a change? Elect patriotic Americans who believe in America first and wish to see us once again as a leader of the free world.
Our own very nice lady, U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, cast the deciding vote for Obamacare, an enormous mistake for which the majority of the American public will pay dearly.
The fault for this dysfunctional government lies not only with the House, as you set forth.
