Antics of a shutdown I

The government shutdown has nothing to do with health care, budgets, national security or the sad plight of the Steelers.

It has to do, plain and simple, with embarrassing a multiracial president.

To his dying breath, House Speaker John Boehner and his gang of nut cases will do anything and everything to make President Obama look bad.

The well-being of this country and our citizens takes a back seat to their pandering to the Koch brothers and to the misguided tea party.

Where was this tea party when the wild and woolly cowboy put us into two expensive wars we could not win?

What are they doing to help the thousands of veterans of those wars, whose lives will never be the same?

As these House members enjoy excellent health care coverage at low cost, the needy go wanting, as always.
