Let's hope things can get back on track for a few months. But let's also not forget all of the pointless pain Boehner and the Tea Party put the country through. Millions of people were hurt by this, and this stunt will actually end up costing tax payers billions in start up costs, waste, overtime costs and back wages paid to workers locked out and sent home. The fools who caused this to happen need to be replaced as soon as legally possible.

Didn't miss the government a bit while they were off! We have way more bureaucrats than we need!

In 1795, a yellow fever epidemic shut down Washington, D.C. for a short period of time. The President was evacuated. Now, how many bureaucrats in total were displaced? 50? 100? How many people noticed that there was no national government?

Looks like Sack borrowed the Dr Suisse idea from the Texas rep.

ddellwo-"Didn't miss the government a bit while they were off!" It's not about what you miss or don't miss. It should be that we are the UNITED States. It was myopic to close the government. Hopefully WE don't have to go through this drama again in a few months.

"Hopefully WE don't have to go through this drama again in a few months." --- Of course we will. This is exactly what Obama and the Dems want. With the media as their cheerleaders, they blame the GOP for everything and the dumbed-down public believes it.

marianneb "ddellwo-"Didn't miss the government a bit while they were off!" It's not about what you miss or don't miss. It should be that we are the UNITED States." It should be but the liberals in this country don't see it that way which is why we're in such a mess.

I never realized how much Boehner actually looks like the Cat in the Hat. This cartoon is pure genius on so many different levels.
