Until Congress assumes fiscal responsibility and passes an annual budget by September 30, our country will suffer with economic growth. Government shutdowns should be banned as they merely cost the taxpayers money. Our elected officials are reminded to properly perform your duties in a timely manner. End the political games and get to work. Stop blocking vote on bills. Stop changing procedural rules to benefit one party over another. You were voted into office to work for the people. So do the people’s work; work that benefits ALL citizens.
