Who represents you? Republicans refuse to raise taxes to pay for two wars they started a decade ago, so the U.S. borrows to pay for continuous warfare. The Republicans threaten to shut the government down again and/or cut Social Security and other domestic programs in order to raise the debt ceiling, allowing us to continue to prosecute these two wars and other military adventures around the world.

The government in fact was shut down by Republicans during a time of war, wars they started. They shut it down to gut the Affordable Health Care Act, (Obama Care) an act that was written by the conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation and put into place in Massachusetts by Republican presidential Candidate Mit Romney.
