Please have the parties stop playing political chicken with each other on such important issues such as the debt ceiling and the budget. The rest of America has to follow a budget and can only acquire so much debt before we have to declare bankruptcy. You folks in Washington need to follow the same level of common sense. Every time you waste time and push a deadline, you waste every Agency's funds because they have to implement contingency plans for shut downs. Sit down like reasonable people and work these things out. That's what you were "hired" (elected) to do. Do it, or you will be getting the pink slip.
