My son-in-law has been furloughed due to the shut down but as I've said to him. "If you voted Republican and you believe in their cause to stop the Affordable Care Act then you need to sit down and be quiet. " You got what you voted for.
However, it goes even further. No president can allow a political party to hold the country hostage because they don't like a law that has already been passed. Affordable care was Obama's campaign and the American people elected him....so I say the American people have already spoken. Certain Congressmen need to sit down and shut up.
