    You get the government that you elect.People who vote for the likes of Ted Cruz are so ignorant they have no idea how these issues affect them -until it does!They consistently vote against their own interests while thinking that they are hurting "the other side".A government shutdown affects everyone,not just government workers.We are loosing millions of dollars everyday,how's that for fiscal responsibility?You think the ACA in bad for small businesses but you shut the government down and make them lay off workers ,loose money because demand is down ......You don't cut off your nose to spite your face!Think people!Educate yourselves and stop being puppets for the wealthy.EDUCATE yourselves,don't throw away your children's future!
