All of the bickering about shutting down the government has politicians and everyday citizens pointing fingers and passing the blame around, depending on who they claim allegiance to. But what you have to understand is that it is not a Democrat or a Republican problem. It’s a party problem. And as long as we have a two party political system in this country, nothing is ever going to change.
It’s all about one political party trying to put down the other. How much of the Republicans’ opposition to Obamacare is because they don’t actually believe it’s a good plan, but rather because it’s his plan? Never mind that nobody from that side of the aisle has come up with anything better.
And how much of their opposition is because of the medical and insurance lobbyists who stuff their pockets? They have a decided interest in maintaining things the way they are.
This isn’t about what is best for you and me, the America citizen. No matter what they claim in front of the TV cameras, we don’t matter to them. These clowns have no problem sending thousands of hard working government employees home without pay, but they damn sure made it plain that their pay will continue, even though they’re not doing their jobs! It’s all a big party to them anyway, thrown at our expense.
It’s way past time to do away with the two party system and make lobbying and accepting “donations” from lobbyists a felony. We need independent representatives who don’t owe anybody anything, except the voters who put them in office.
Because, who pays for the party? We all do!
