Bad deal II

| Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Well, the can has been kicked down the road until January. We still do not have a constitutionally mandated federal budget. And it appears that President Obama's health-care-elimination and economy-deterioration agenda is going to be funded.

Only one congressman within the Trib's readership area voted responsibly to not give our budding dictator in chief a blank check. Keith Rothfus, R-Sewickley, deserves a “thank you” for protecting his constituents and all Americans from the continuing abuses by the Obama administration, aka “the regime.”

Along with U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., Rothfus has earned the privilege of being re-elected in 2016, assuming they hold firm in future battles, such as Obama's goal of granting amnesty citizenship and voting rights for illegal aliens.

The other three loin dogs who aided and abetted Obama in deteriorating America and jeopardizing each of us in this latest fiasco — “Dis-representatives” Mike Kelly, Tom Murphy and Bill Shuster — deserve scorn, campaign defunding and removal from office by any means available.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
