      Voters sent a bunch of politicians to DC who do not believe in government.

      Surprise: they are doing their darndest to see that the government doesn't function.

      Republicans: if they only had a heart.

        I don't understand why people consider this to be some kind of "problem". It's a problem if you want the ACA to be implemented, etc. It's not a problem of consistency at all. If you elect only pro-government officials, the government will just grow out of control. Every new program will be a good idea.

        You can argue that these people are working against the best interests of the nation, but they are doing exactly what (most of) their constituents, at least the most activist and vocal ones, actually want.

        I refuse to blame our local high school, Cleveland Heights High, for Darrell Issa. It also produced three other former congressmen, none of whom dropped out to become criminals. And the second richest man in Congress. I would not be surprised if those two things were related.
