Gov't. Shut Down

I am sure that lots of you in the private sector have had to stay at "work" and not go home till the "job" is done. It should be the same for our elected officials. If they don't want to stay and finish the job. Then, they should be let go. Just like in the "real" world. Everyone, is replaceable.

I hope they never come back to office. All they do is rob, cheat, and kill citizens. They're nothing more than a bunch of abusive slave owners.

Kabuki theater? Did they change their minds that quick because they figured out the people didn't care? So they had to make themselves relevant again?
