    the government is very inefficient. There is too much of the one size fits all thinking going on. then there are those government employees and organizations that think the people exist to take care of them than the other way around.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

No poll numbers regarding Congress is going to change that.
    And you simply don't understand that while those people put the Republicans in charge does not mean they approve lock in step with EVERYTHING they are doing. Hence why BOTH parties are taking a hit for this. While people may not like the ACA, they also don't approve of the Republicans method right now of shutting the government down to do it.

    I know this is hard for you to believe but you really have no idea why Republicans were sent to D.C. after the 2012 election and you aren't in the mainstream but the reality is they are doing exactly what they were sent to do and it wasn't the Republicans that shutdown the govt. it was the Democrats. The fact that you buy the media and leftwing spin says a lot about you and that is the problem with far too many today. You get something in your head that you want to believe and no fact in the world is going to change your opinions. Try to focus, Republicans did not shutdown the govt, they submitted a CR to the Senate which the Senate rejected, that is what shut down the govt.

    By poor leadership, I trust you are referring to John Boehner, who clearly makes Obama look like the best of Churchill and Lombardi rolled into one. I don't know about you, but I have never seen such a spineless buffoon as Boehner

    What a surprise, again someone who sees what they want to see. You don't get it either, the House is doing exactly what the people told them to do and even though you don't like it tough. I doubt seriously that the people of Westchester, Ohio, Boehner's home district gives a damn what you think of him as he will win re-election by big numbers. Same holds true with most Republicans. The ones that get in trouble are the ones that don't do what the people who employ them tell them to do.

    ..... Just as Obama won by big numbers from his constituency.

    But, once again, Con leads from the heart, posting his hot rhetoric assuming he know the truth yet he can not support it. How is the house doing what people told them to do, given that forcing a government shutdown over ObamaCare was a loser by more than 2 to 1

    Dems kept the Senate and the White house. The ACA was upheld by the Supreme Court. And if you want to dig deeper, the Dems received more votes during the House election than Repubs by 2 million votes. In what way is voting to interfere with the ACA the will of the people? Which people? Certainly not the majority of American citizens and is counterfactual to the law as declared by the Supreme Court. So which people Conservative?

    Yes, the norm is deficit spending. The American population is, as a whole, stupid for reelecting the politicians that do this.
