Did I really get a call about the CR?

I was stunned that ANYONE, including my local Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, would bother to spend any money on a telephone survey wanting to know my opinion of the government shutdown and Buck’s role in doing so.

Look, what is wrong with our political system is you have approximately 435 lawyers who don’t listen to each other and just want to win arguments.

Democrats, Republicans — I laugh when I see Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, the “tan guy” or Mitch McConnell rail against partisan politics.

They are the partisan politicians. (They have over 100 years of service between them.) Whatever one’s thoughts are on health care, on the continuing resolution I think we can all agree that our politicians are not serving us on any level.

It is time to look at other options — these people are the old guard and they don’t even realize it.

So to answer the recent phone survey questions: Yes, I am angry that Buck voted to shut down all services; yes, I am less likely to vote for him and/or any candidate who refuses to negotiate; and yes, I vote.
