    U.S. House Republicans alone have shut down the government.

    It’s perfectly obvious that the Republicans in the U.S. House are hell-bent to destroy our economy, our way of life, our society, our health care.

    House Speaker John Boehner is afraid of the conservative Tea Party. He has the votes to get a clean continuing budget resolution passed with the votes of House Democrats, and then only needs a few rational Republicans. Where is his courage to do this?

    How much do the American people have to suffer before the Republican conservatives regain their sanity?
