The problem with the elections working is that now the Repubs are running around, through their repub. governors, tryiny to "rig" the next elections. they now have the support of a corrupt supreme court who have given them a free field to contiue with voter manipulation. I think tha the problem has been increased by the sheer outrageous cost of campaigns. This has allowed the "big money peope" to gain control of our gov't. Our country should be ashamed of the existing poverty and the idea that there are hungry CHILDREN in our "Great Country". Who do we think ran some of our great cities into bankruptcy? Not the poor, the rich corrupt leaders did it. Detroit looks like a third world country!!! SHAME SHAME SHAMED !!!
WE THE PEOPLE need to take back control or our gov't. It will take will power and it will take money but if we want a gov't FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE like our founders planned !!! Remember power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The house keeps talking about financial responsibility, WHo is going to pay for the millions wasted on this gov't shut down? I can guess it will not be the KOCH BROS (who could have feed millions of children, the world wide with the money they spent to control the house), nor the tea party kooks. It will be on the backs of those who can least afford it.
What will be their response when people start dying from the stress of not knowing if they will have any income in Nov. Back pay does not pay for food, medicine, gas, rent etc. NOW. Your can't give the grocery store or gas sta. or pharmacy an IOU !!! There will be heart attacks, suicides, and increase in domestic violence all on the head of Boehner!!! He should be provided a list of these deaths to put under his pillow. I hope someone keeps track of these things because they will happen.
