John Boehner has no control over his republicans in congress. Unless something big happens and happens fast, the Federal Government will shut down on Tuesday, October 1st by radical republicans.
Last time they did this they paid dearly the following election.
Puzzling thing is it's all about defunding the Affordable Care Act which is the law of the land and would have been funded anyway.
Why do the American people keep giving these irresponsible republicans the keys to the car only to let them drive off a cliff? They did this in 2011 and now it looks like it will happen again. If they can't be responsible driving the country, then take away their keys again and make sure they don't get them again.
The best / worst is yet to come with the debt ceiling deadline October 17th. Unless their demands are met, republican majority in congress will not raise the debt ceiling. Demands like the Keystone pipeline, more offshore drilling..... you know, the things the oil industry want. Nothing to do with debt, just the kidnappers demands.
Boehner, reign in your congress. You're doing a shitty job.
