I'm speechless.  Infuriated and speechless.  Republicans have shut down the government over providing healthcare to Americans at price they can afford.  It's a Tea Party, a spilled wet dream.  You mean we can force the Democrats to negotiate about an adopted law AND we can stop the government?  Really?  Christmas!

I can't even imagine where we go from here.  No one seems to have a rational explanation for an end game.

I'm not feeling backlash yet.  What if we go on like this for weeks, and they start thinking maybe we should go without government at all?

And Darwin comes by and starts turning out lights? Hello, Great Depression.  Nice to see you again.  So nice of you to drop by. More on financial implications here.

John Boehner's Shut Down

With No New Plan, Boehner Makes Plea on Shutdown

This says what I want to say, in much the same exasperated tone:
Wrong Side of History

A Population Betrayed

Why Conservatives Should Reread Milton Friedman

Why the Right Fights

Why Boehner doesn't just ditch the hard right
