Read several tweets by Democrats recently giving the Republicans a hard time about the threaten government shutdown. It is just political posturing. The Democrats would be doing the same thing if their numbers were reversed in the Senate and House. Would, they have.

It seem to me people need to stop aligning themselves as Democrat or Republican. Look at the U.S. history since WWII. Government spending goes up every year, we keep introducing more doomed social plans, more jobs leave the U.S., and education continues to decline. NO MATTER WHO IS IN CHARGE! (Please excuse the caps lock.) Both sides point to each other as the problem and nothing meaningful every gets resolved.

I don't really expect to see any change until we hit bottom.
