Good point. Except I've been a small business owner since '97.
Sometimes change requires a little pain. For the American public to wake up and stop voting in the same people over and over, we need a lot of pain.
You are right though, the House GOP should be thrown out of office for this next election.
They won't though, because of gerrymandering. So all this pain will be for nothing.
They ALL need to be thrown out.
House Republicans dug this hole, it's on them.
The House presented something to the Senate to keep the government open. The Senate Democrats voted it down. Democrat Obama draws a line in the sand, refuses to negotiate, says "it's MY way or the highway".
There's plenty of blame to go around. It doesn't all go to the House GOP.
