The United States Government is within 3 hours of being shutdown by the extremist, Tea Party faction of the Republican controlled House of Representatives. Please visit my politics blog if you are interested in following this story. You will find a link to my countdown timer itself so you can watch it countdown in realtime.
So….I have said about all I have to say on this topic but let me leave you with this one. Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. With this in mind, let me remind you that the House of Representatives, driven by the Right Wing Extremist Tea Party faction, has voted to defund/cancel/modify Obama care almost 45 times. Every vote was doomed from the start but that didn’t stop them. Nope….they did it again, and again, and again somehow convincing themselves that things would be different. The kicker is that they are planning on doing it again tonight which will almost certainly result in a Government Shutdown. I guess that everyone can make their own judgement based on the facts as presented but….. in my opinion these folks aren’t just insane they’re CRIMINALLY INSANE!
