Government can't run anything
This government shutdown is inexcusable. These individuals are great at pointing fingers back and forth blaming each other. Both sides have dug their heels in to get what they want including Mr. President who fuels the fire with his comments and his stance. And he loves to point his finger.
And while both sides are arguing about the health care program it is important to remember that the government can't run a program effectively to save their lives. Take a look at Social Security, Medicare, the post office, unemployment -- just to name a few. They run everything they create into the ground because they throw the programs together without the checks and balances necessary to run the programs effectively.
I read letters all the time from people who support their political party pointing the finger as well. They state a case for why their party is the best or why the other party is the worst. In reality, neither political party truly cares about the state of our country. It is all about getting their agendas met, which pocket they are in and saving face.
