There is gridlock in Washington DC right now. No doubt there are functional problems in the relationships with our leaders. The Senate seems to be the adults in the room right now. How can we let one faction of one party in one part of government shut things down like this. Many of their supporters do so against their best interest.
Friends, America is about to be in a very bad position and there is enough blame to be passed around. In full disclosure I am a Democrat and I think there needs to be more flexibility on my side of the issues but not at the expense of the middle class or the poor.
Getting a deal done has become very hard and I am not sure when the House and Senate can come together on the issues of the shutdown. They have a few hours now before default.
I feel that the GOP will be hurt for years because of this and all because of a radical faction put them in this spot. We will have to see how the coming days impacts our country. Our reputation and credit depend on it.
