I am looking forward to Obamacare. It will allow me to get a family insurance plan, which I was unable to get because of minor pre-existing conditions. However, whether my congressperson is for or against Obamacare, she should not play politics with the government shutdown issue. It is, frankly, stupid. It is akin to saying we authorized the charges on a credit card, but will not pay the bill unless you take back the dress that was bought and worn to that big gala. Congress authorized the expenditures. Congress needs to pay for them.
We voted these lawmakers to be our representatives, not politicians. Do not play politics with the economy. Represent our interests, not those of the radical right-wing of the Republican party.
