The republican congress just shut down the government over a bill that was passed by them and is a law...
Not many ways to broadcast your callous ways and ignorance to American voters...Pure ignorance.
Your bullshit is moot.
The national legislative body of the U.S., consisting of the Senate, or upper house, and the House of Representatives, or lower house, as a continuous institution.
The Republicans do NOT control congress.
They do hold a majority in the House of Representatives.
The Republicans in the House of Representatives were duly elected and are doing exactly what they promised to do during their campaigns.
It's called democracy.
Congress (not the president) controls the power of the purse under Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution.
