Rep. Neugebauer Yells at Park Ranger for Doing Her Job, Visiting Vet Dresses Him Down

11:34 am in Politics by Elliott

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) voted to shut down the federal government. Shutting down the government shutdown the National Parks and yet here he is bitching out a park ranger for doing her job. She handles it gracefully.

The best part is the visiting veteran who dresses Neugebauer down.

Logic is apparently not in the representative’s repertoire (do you think that’s too big a word for him to understand?).

The Shutdown, It Looms

7:47 pm in Politics, Republican Party by Elliott

So, the Tea Party is going all out in their crusade to destroy America.

I agree with the White House via HuffPo:

…Congress has two jobs to do: pass budgets and pay the bills it has racked up. Republicans in Congress had the opportunity to pass a routine, simple continuing resolution that keeps the government running for a few more weeks. But instead, Republicans decided they would rather make an ideological point by demanding the sabotage of the health care law. Republicans have tried and failed to defund or delay the health care law more than 40 times, and they know this demand is reckless and irresponsible

But wait, there’s more.  Saturday evening, they decided to go all in:

House Republicans have added a measure aimed at limiting contraceptive coverage…

The Affordable Care Act was signed into law four years ago, FOUR. Years. Ago.

Like the President says, ”Congress has two jobs to do: pass budgets and pay the bills it has racked up.”

Oh and No, David Gregory, Democrats aren’t part of the problem here:

“As Congress digs in over Obamacare and the budget, are both parties prepared to take the economy over the edge?” Like the President says, ”Congress has two jobs to do: pass budgets and pay the bills it has racked up.”
