I’ve got to hand it to the assholes/politicians ruining our economy while they play partisan games at the expense of the American middle class; they’ve got a lot of people shook up. Not just here in the U.S., but worldwide.
I hope they’re proud of themselves. They’ve proven to be the biggest collection of corporate crook lovers ever to screw up the House of Representatives AND the Senate at the same time! It’s an all-time low for Democracy. A minority has polarized the majority. Our system has failed. The world can see what’s happening better than the morons who are sinking the system.
I have one question for you: “Do you plan on backing new Tea Partyers to assure maximum damage to our entire democratic system in the future?”
I’d like to think voters will remember what the Tea Party has done here and will prevent their uncompromising climb to power in the years ahead.
The Associated Press interviewed people across the country and found that, whatever their political leanings, frustration about the debt debate itself was the most commonly held view.

Bob Krogman, a 60 year-old Air Force veteran who survived three helicopter crashes over North Vietnam standing outside the St. Louis VA Medical Center:
"Politicians care about themselves, and that's the way it's always been since I was in the military. I'm furious. I hate them.”
Denise Cox, 47, of Ohioville, PA, a western Pennsylvania nursing home worker:
"On both sides of the aisle, they all claim to be so smart. So how did we get to this point? It didn't happen overnight. All of these supposedly intelligent people brought us to this point, and now they are scrambling to see who they can take money from."
Robert Lydon, a pipefitter from Cohasset, Mass interviewed at Post Office Square, surrounded by banks and investment firms in Boston's financial district:
"They're fiddling while Rome is burning.They're playing to their egos and not thinking about the regular person on the street like me."
Miranda Ledouceur, 28 Woonsocket, R.I. resident:
"If they don't fix this there will be a lot of people on the street.Things are bad enough already."
