Dysfunction in Washington continues

We hired these idiots in Congress to work for our benefit. Both parties are at fault for the government shutdown but the Republicans more so than the Democrats. They are both playing turf wars. If you want to see how dysfunctional Congress is tune in to C-Span and find out how they use the idiotic rules to win their point! As my pappy used to say, "It takes a Philadelphia lawyer to figure it out." And to think we are paying them while the country goes down the tubes!
