I don't get t that we want to ridicule our representatives for "shutting down the government." Our government was designed to make it hard to pass laws. If there are representatives who disagree with legislation and that disagreement results in under funding or no funding until an agreement is reached, so be it. If a representative and his/her constituents disagree on an issue then they have a right and I would argue, duty, to vote against the issue until or unless they agree. Otherwise there would be no need to have representatives.
