30 Tea Party radicals are holding the Republican Party hostage - including the Speaker of the House (their leader) who takes orders from elitists like multi-millionaire and elitist Ted Cruz, with no moderate sane Republicans having the courage to shut these imbeciles up - who realize America will finally get what is going on costing them future election victories - the destruction of Obama is more important than funding the government to these ideologues - and the life and death issues this represents - we clearly see that the Teapublican hatred of Obama is more important than even the health and safety people they claim to represent. Now they're playing victim - as they always do. They do not want universal healthcare for the middle class and poor - and they will do anything to destroy any Obama initiative - even if it hurts Americans. They obviously do not care about you or me - they only care about staying elected - and pandering to this radical fringe of imbeciles (they are truly stupid) because that fringe threatens fellow Republicans openly - if you're not with us - you're against us - and well destroy you. If you only watch Fox News or listen to Rush - you will not understand any of this - as they intended.
One immature party gets mad at the other party and refuse to cooperate. When they can't agree they have to shut everything down because, in this instance, they didn't set a budget, so they couldn't spend money until they have.
