Here we go again. The American people is again held hostage by our elected officials in Washington who are acting like kindergarten kids.

When will we the voters wake up and get these cronies out of Washington? When they come up for re-election we should vote all current members out of office and put new people in office. I think an even better solution would be to abolish the two-party system and have one group serving the needs of the people.

We should also demand that our elected federal officials have the same health insurance as the people they serve and that they also pay into Social Security like everyone else. It's kind of ironic that they shut down and furlough federal employees, but they continue to receive their paychecks and benefits. These elected officials seem to forget that they were elected to serve the people and not their own interests.
