My Turn: Government Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

So the Senate, the House of Representatives and the President failed to reach a compromise and the government has shut down.  Disgusted is the only word in can come up with to describe these elected leaders. 

Former Senator Trent Lott, who was noted for his hardball politics, said this, "It's gotten too nasty and too mean these days. I couldn't work with these guys." 

Playing politics with America's fragile economy and negatively affecting people's lives unnecessarily has to stop.  We need real leaders, not just elected officials trying to further their own political careers.
