Washington beyond ridiculous

There’s a funny interview with Senator Ted Cruz (Republican Texas) on CNN in which he calls for Kathleen Sebelius to resign because what he says her failure with the “Obamacare” health care exchange is causing the American people great harm; and he pontificates that that would be unconscionable for any official to do.

Excuse the #`(% out of me… but isn’t that just what he and his cronies did in the Senate and House for over two weeks???  Cause the American people great harm by not doing the job that the American people elected them to do???

While we all expect that people like Cruz depend on the American people having a short memory of their failures, but he really thinks that the average American is so dim-witted that they can’t remember the government shutdown that he was a major cause of four days later???

It’s really sad to think he ever got elected — and what’s even sadder is he probably will be re-elected because those in his district are so blinded by their hatred of a single issue that they will not look at the record and realize that people like Cruz aren’t moving this country forward, they’re helping to destroy it.

Now don’t get me wrong… I think the HealthCare.gov is a f’ing failure (and the individual mandate should probably be delayed because of the government’s failure to deliver a reasonably functional health care insurance exchange by 1-Oct-2013), but it’s exactly what everyone should have expected to come out of Washington.  It’s far more an example of what’s wrong with Washington than what’s wrong with the Obama administration (though there’s lots wrong with the Obama administration to be sure).

 People like Cruz just need to take a long hard look in the mirror to see where the problem startes… and the best possible thing everyone can do is vote the incumbents out — none of them have any clue how to get this country back on track.
