    Keep in mind that these very conservative Tea Party representatives are NOT making a mess by accident.  What they are doing is EXACTLY what they and their supporters think as necessary and correct.

    To the very conservative voters and monied interests that got the Tea Party representatives into congress, the best government is the government that does the least.  This has been the credo of the conservatives for a long time.  If you are a very conservative business owner, you want the government to make NO regulations that interfere with your profit-making.  If you are a very conservative voter, you want to government to make NO laws that interfere with your racist life-style.  Those Tea Party representatives have this same philosophy of government.

    So when these conservative representatives refuse to allow a bill to come to the floor, or refuse to confirm an appointment, or vote to shut down a government agency, they are doing exactly what their conscience and their constituents tell them to do.
