GOP palefaces speak with forked tongues.

First they lament the huge national debt and then cost the economy at least 24 billion dollars. They have become like a hemorrhoidal pain to every unbiased American.

Nothing was gained and a lot was lost in the government shutdown.

They have showed the same mentality as gangbangers. The bill recently passed is just another Band-Aid. In three months, it will be deja vu. Please, "no mas."
