With the recent government shutdown many are urging Congressman John Boehner and the rest of the Republican party raise the debt ceiling and pass Obama care. I am glad that they are final standing up to President Obama and the Democratic party. The overspending by the United State government has gone on for two long, it is time that we cut spending and ultimately attempt to lower this countries debt so that we can become not only a military power house up also an economic power house again. There also needs to be some responsibility place on individuals to take care of themselves instead of relying on everyone else to support them for whatever reason it is. There are times when people need legitimate help but many have taken advantage of the system for way to long. Maybe the government shutdown will encourage some change in the way things are being done. I may sound real right winged in this post but everyone is being affected by this because so many federal jobs and parks are being closed so it has come down to making a stand for doing what is right.
