This is no way to run a government. I consider the election of Tea Partiers to Congress in 2010 to be one of the biggest political disasters of recent years. Apparently stuntmen like Ted Cruz and his fellows don't care about or understand democracy. They lost the presidency last year and didn't take back the Senate, as well as lost seats in the House, yet they still want to force their grab-bag of goodies like repealing Obamacare. They should just let it continue to take effect and if it's a disaster Democrats will take the blame! They need to grow up, get over it, and realize that elections have consequences. Shutting down the government and/or defaulting on our debt will hurt large numbers of people. They need to come to their senses and put country over politics.
