    giddy about the results.
       I understand that, the R's shot themselves in the foot.
        But the thing is, they shot out into the crowd as well, and a lot of people were hurt, as was our overall economy.

       What we really ought to be is angry because these people are doing harm to our Nation when they're supposed to be legislating.
       The $24 Billion they just cost us is on top of the havoc they've been reeking for almost 3 years now, since they took the House in the 2010 Election. How much uncertainty and stagnation has this "governing by crisis" already caused? And how much has it cost in holding up vital legislation for our Nation's farms, its transportation, the broken immigration system? Not to mention the jobs bills they've blocked for the past 2 years now.

       Angry is what the American People ought to be. And angry enough to throw these worthless Asses out, and vote in some real Legislators.
