This is what real conservatives think of the tea party shakedown

Nearly any but the die-hardest tea party member regrets the shuttering of the U.S. government. It was unnecessary, counterproductive and punishes all the wrong people — including federal employees, who do yeoman’s work for which they receive little credit.
Tying the defunding of Obamacare to the shutdown was folly, which sensible House Republicans knew even as they ignored their better judgment. Even so, the White House and Democrats seem determined to prove their own toughness by punishing the least deserving.

That the fixation with Obamacare has now led to a government “shutdown” is bad policy and politics. For all its flaws, Obamacare was duly passed by Congress, upheld by the Supreme Court and (indirectly) affirmed by the 2012 election. Government cannot function if determined minorities threaten to stop many of its operations every time they lose a major vote. Americans dislike disorder; they will (rightly) blame congressional Republicans for the shutdown’s disruptions and any economic ill effects.

You know what....they are writing to the low information voter. I'm getting tired of this....thinking that a conservative should "play" the "old stogie", "good ole boys" way of doing things rather than what the voters want.......THAT is why Cruz is supported by multiples more than you know.

If the Tea Party is our salvation, you'd better hope there is an afterlife. That is, unless your dumb arrogance chokes you first.

<quoted text>Social Security Warns Benefits Could Get Cut
Washington Wire HOME PAGE »
The Social Security Administration has begun warning the public it cannot guarantee full benefit payments if the debt ceiling isn’t increased.
When asked by the public, the agency is notifying beneficiaries that “Unlike a federal shutdown which has no impact on the payment of Social Security benefits, failure to raise the debt ceiling puts Social Security benefits at risk,” according to a person familiar with the agency directive.
Obama again using scare tactics to harm and scare the old and sick. What a man, what a scum bag.
Number one, if Obama wants a war, let it start here. Everyone has parents, grandparents and relatives on Social Security. Go to the Social Security Office, half of the people there are hispanic and can't speak english. They don't even know when their number is called. If Obama wants to cut, let him cut all the illegals and frauds that are on the system.
He is all about stirring up trouble. A school ground bully.

Your question reveals more about your ignorance than mine. Your defense of a bunch of mindless, traitorous, self-destructive idiots calling themselves the Tea Party, is all the evidence we need.
Your amateurish representatives in Congress are even more deranged than your rank and file. You destructive imbeciles are out to destroy my America, and I'm out to get you.

Republicans have no sense of decency OR of "America." They want to destroy our government and economy, which IMO makes them the real enemy of our nation.

I'm not at all opposed to seizing all 'bagger leaders and Congresscritters, and putting them in detention in Gitmo. Trials can wait until some future time.
