New: Federal Shutdown

In shutting down our government, House Republicans are taking legislative brinksmanship to dangerous levels and threatening the health of American Democracy itself. 

The Affordable Care Act, a Republican-style marketplace program, became law pursuant to Constitutional protocols: approval in all three branches of our government. 

Further undermining the health of our Democracy, mainstream media outlets all too often allow Tea Party Republicans to evade answering important questions, allowing them, instead, to hijack “news” shows for their political gain. 

Don’t furlough Federal workers and shut down necessary governmental services (weather, space, Earth sciences, health research and so much more). Give these Tea Party Republican terrorists the boot they deserve. Vote them out of office!
