Congress to blame
So it is not terrorists who shut down our government, it is our own members of Congress. [“Government shutdown,” page one, Oct. 2.] Because they don’t like Obamacare, they don’t want people to have access to health care?
Representatives in the House make $174,000 (that is the lowest pay) for 120 days of sitting making ridiculous decisions like this — if they do anything at all. And they have their own health-care plan.
Well I don’t think I like that. I think I would like to stop paying them now. I think it is more important to feed my family than support this freak show called Congress.
