Moronic and Bullies....Yep That About Sums It Up

It is official.  The government has shut down.  Why?  The GOP claims that it is because Obama and the  Democrats won't kill the ACA even though the majority of people in the country re-elected Obama and maintained the Senate in Democratic control and increased house seats despite GOP gerrymandering.  It leaves me and millions of others like Mr. Kalis scratching their heads.  It reminds me of the school bully saying give me your lunch money now or I will toss you into the trash.  The bully knows that if I give him the money then I become an easy mark, but if I don't then I become a threat that must be dealt with.  Except this time the bully then tries to blame me for the beat down because I refused to "compromise" and do what he wanted.

Harry Reid calls out the GOP for what they are:

“You know with a bully you cannot let them slap you around, because they slap you around today, they slap you five or six times tomorrow,” Mr. Reid, a former boxer, continued. “We are not going to be bullied.” 
In addition to criticizing Mr. Boehner, Mr. Reid excoriated what he called the “banana Republican mind-set” of the House. He called on the speaker to put the Senate bill up for a vote, which would almost certainly pass in the House because of overwhelming Democratic support and backing from moderate Republicans.
 But it seems that the Democrats are not the only ones calling out the actions of the House GOP.

“You have this group that keeps saying somehow if you’re not with them, you’re for Obamacare,” said Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California. “If you’re not with exactly their plan, exactly what they want to do, then you’re somehow for Obamacare, and it’s just getting a little old.” 
“It’s moronic to shut down the government over this,” he continued.
Yep, that is Republican Devin Nunes calling the actions of the House GOP "moronic."  Republican Peter King is quoted in the article that this is "a dead end that Ted Cruz created."  Sure, this is all the Democrats fault.  "They simple won't do what we want so we are going to find an innocent person, the American citizen, and beat on him/her until you give in," claim the GOP.  Maybe that is why 63% of the population believe the GOP are to blame for this mess and 69% think that the GOP are acting like children!
