Rep. Chaffetz: We don't want shutdown

Is there any compromise to be found in Washington? OutFront is House Republican Jason Chaffetz, who is one of the congressmen pushing to block Obamacare.

    Boehner is by far The worst- Wimpiest Speaker in all Congressionalll History.( Both Parties)
    He has no backbone – but constantly lets the Tea party caucus kick his butt.
    The definition of Insanity is doing the same old thing over and over, and expecting a different result..
    45 times these morons have presented different Kill Obamacare legislation – (that they knew was impassable) – Legislation, Harry Reid, and Obama, in advance, said would be rejected –
    But – again and again, they presented the same old, waste of time garbage.
    They must be fools –
    Who else but a fool, would continue to try the same old fools errand over and over.

    They are like a Championship boxer , who, having lost the Championship – continued to contest the results over 45 Time for years - But never accomplished anything else, -
    because he was backwards focused – instead of just moving on.
    This is why I hate the GOP – they are totally backward looking and accomplish nothing.
    They have been Obstructionists to their own peril –
    I hope and pray they get trolloped next time around.

    They Claim they are concerned about the economy –
    but are throwing the Country into greater debt, and possible default by their actions.
    They actually get paid to sponsor Legislation they know has 00000000000000% chance of being passed.
    They would be fired by any other employer in the World if they had a real job.

    Its time the media called them out for what they are –
    Pathetically Sore Losers –
    Who forever role the same old ball up a hill –
    only to have it come rolling back down on them- again and again and again .
    These GOP stooges are not diplomats –
    Diplomats trade for concessions. and accomplish things.
    Instead, they are hard headed – dumbazzes .

    If they are so worried about Govt health care and debt,
    Let them forfeit their own Govt.paid Health care first, and lead by example-
    Let them cut their staffs -
    minimize, and turn their expense accounts back in to the Country .
    – Heck no, --they wouldn't do that .
    Their hypocrites sucking on the Nanny State Teat -
    You know - (The one they constantly complain about) for all they can get....
    I am so tired of listening to their Partisan Parrot talking points.
    I believe they have had approx 162 days off this year.
    And when they were in Washington, all they did was prepare unpassable legislation.
    The American People deserve better than this

    What an ignominious end to any notions I may have had in re: civic engagement. I went from actually contacting my member to Congress in the summer of 2011 to not really giving two shakes of a lamb's tail about it now. I have no lawyers or lobbying money to offer these charlatans, so I clearly have no say in my own civic process...

    I deleted those pics of the Trumbull paintings from the Capital rotunda tour from my Facebook profile awhile ago, so maybe this was a long time coming.
