The shutdown is over, and a more serious crisis was averted — that’s good.
But we should all be horrified and embarrassed that something like this can happen in the United States. At the end of the day, this mess put people out of work for more than two weeks, and it cost our economy $24 billion.
Now is the time Congress needs to hear from the people who sent them to Washington: We can’t let something like this ever happen again — OFA supporters are going to stand with the leaders who get back to the real work we sent them there to do.
There are way too many real problems Washington needs to solve, and OFA is committed to making sure that Congress gets to work on the agenda Americans voted for last fall. For one, they need to finish the job of fixing our broken immigration system.
But for the last several weeks, one faction of one party in one half of one branch of government got the chance to derail everything. And there are already some people pushing them to do it again.
We have to stop going from one manufactured crisis to another — that’s one of the reasons grassroots organizing matters. At the eleventh hour, we were loud enough to bring the shutdown to an end.
Now, we need to send a crystal-clear message to the people who set the agenda in Congress. Sign OFA’s letter and join us in saying we can’t ever do this again:
I keep hearing the talking airheads on political talk shows speak of winners & losers.
The only winner in all this shutdown business was the very same political talking airheads who used this fake crisis to gain revenues from viewers which increased sponsor dollars. The TeaTardedRepubliCANTS didn’t win a damn thing. The real legitimate Republicans lost respect and backbone. Democrats lost forward motion. Americans/America lost financial progress, face and reputation to the world and economic security.
The only person to come out of this without losing a damn thing was Barack Hussein Obama. After begging & pleading with Tea Party led Republicans (TeaTardedRepubliCANTS) not to send America off yet another fiscal cliff, he stepped back and refused to be bullied by this group of racist wanna be dictators.
Weekly Address: Working Together on Behalf of the American People
In this week’s address, President Obama said that now that the Federal government is reopened and the threat of default is lifted from the economy, there are three places Washington can take action to serve the American people. First, it’s time for a balanced, responsible approach to the budget that grows the economy and shrinks our long term deficits. Second, we must fix our broken immigration system. And finally, Congress should pass a farm bill to give rural communities the opportunity to grow. The President said it’s time to put aside politics and work on behalf of the American people and the country we love.
For more than two weeks, President Obama worked diligently to reopen the government and remove the dangers of default from our economy. Hemet with members of Congress from both parties, talked with Americans impacted by the shutdown, and spoke to the press. Thanks to those efforts and the work of Democrats and responsible Republicans in Congress, the President signed legislation late Wednesday night to end the shutdown.
The President also continued working on other issues throughout the shutdown. He found time to welcome official visitors to the White House, present the Medal of Honor, and appoint a new Chair to the Federal Reserve. In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights from those 16 days:
Shutdown Impact: While the government was closed, the President met with those whose lives had been affected by the government shutdown. He talked with small business owners to discuss the impacts of the government shutdown on their businesses and thanked FEMA employees at the National Response Coordinating Center for working during the shutdown, in preparation of Tropical Storm Karen.
He also visited to a DC food pantry, Martha’s Table, to thank furloughed federal employees who spent their time out of the office volunteering for charities and non-profits.
During the shutdown, many local businesses offered discounts and free food to furloughed employees. For lunch one day, the President and Vice President walked to Taylor Gourmet, a locally owned sandwich shop near the White House that was offering a discount and a free cookie to furloughed employees.
Did the Tea Party led Republicans (TeaTardedRepubliCANTS) learn a damn lesson from getting their asses whoooooped? We’ll soon learn the answer to this question on January 15th, 2014 and on February 7th, 2014, when we face the exact same shit all over again.
The only solution to this recurring fake crisis is this…..
Because the Tea Party led Republicans (TeaTardedRepubliCANTS) are full of this……
Wake Up America….We The People are fast becoming The United States Of AmeriKKKa.
