Has anyone in Ohio noticed Republicans have shut down the Government?

"[By] minimal standards, this Congress is failing. More specifically, the Republican leaders of the House of Representatives are failing. They should fulfill their basic duties to the American people or make way for legislators who will.

We don't come to that view as rabid partisans. On many of the issues stalemating Washington, we find plenty of blame to go around. We've criticized President Obama's reluctance to pursue entitlement reform. The last time the country reached the debt ceiling, we urged both sides to compromise on revenue and spending in the interest of long-term fiscal soundness.

This time, fiscal responsibility isn't even a topic. Instead, Republicans have shut much of the government in what they had to know was a doomed effort to derail the Affordable Care Act.... Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Budget Committee chairman and former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and their colleagues may be in a difficult political position. Honestly, we don't much care. They need to reopen the government and let it pay its bills.

Jay Rosen called it a "remarkable editorial," paraphrasing the Post's editors: "We'd like to blame both sides. We tried. We've blamed both sides before. But in this case..."

Ohio, you need to get rid of these embarrassing children of the corn!! Sooner the better! Shutting the Government down for a Tea PArty hissy fit, shame on you, get your represetatives to act a little more adult please!!!!

Stunts, charades, gimmicks, we're supposed to be the most sophisticated country on the planet and this circus clown show is what you give us!!!
