I definitely agree that responsibility for the shutdown of the government is shared by the whole governmental body – the House, the Senate, the Republicans, the Democrats and the president.

When do these people realize they were sent to Washington to do the work of the American people and, so when do they start? This situation in Washington make me think it’s time for term limits for senators and congressmen and after their terms are up, they should go back to their home states and get real jobs.
