Since Congress cannot agree on anything, our government has now shut down. This is such a travesty, because so many people are going to be affected by this in different ways, and not for the better. This Congress and president are an abomination — they have never been able to agree to work on anything together, without constantly clashing.
It is time for the American people to demand that the entire Congress and the president make a concerted effort to work together, or to tender their resignations immediately. The government cannot afford to be shut down at all, and the longer it takes to resolve critical issues, the more dire things will grow for this country. Enough of this chicanery, political boondoggling and political grandstanding already!
