Give me a break! They voted to continue breaking the country, ruining your children's future, and give Kentucky 3 billion dollars as a kickback. We get the government we deserve. At this rate the country will be gone before there will be an anchor baby dual citizen homo in the White House.

I find it rather upsetting that our congressman, Tom Reed, voted against the continuing resolution, voted against restarting our government and the valuable and needed services it provides, voted against the best interests of our country! This man must think he's invulnerable! I hope that he is proven very wrong in November 2014. His irresponsibility, had it been carried forward instead of being voted down, would have done egregious harm not only to our country but to the whole world.

Tom Reed ran on promises of bipartisanship. This terrible vote proves he was blowing hot air. He could not care less about bipartisanship, could not care less about the welfare of his constituents and could not care less about US!

Max out the credit card, and ask the credit card over and over to pleeease increase my credit limit...I promise I will pay it back this time. Please granny! OUR REP (and Cruz et al) is a true American that doesn't want to see our country run deeper into the ground

Great ...give the government another credit card they can max out and never pay down. What would a banker say to a person who came to ask for a loan if they had the same fiscal behavior our government does. You know Obama will be asking for another credit card to max out come December.

Note OUR Rep..voted to continue the shut down and NOT pay our bills.

I too applaud the bipartisan coming together for the good of our Country we saw in both parties, particularly the GOP. It took courage to put politics aside for what is in the best interest of our Country.

This is how our government is supposed to work.

Let us hope they can continue to work together for our Country and stop working just for interests groups.

I congratulate McConnell and Boehner for having the integrity to lead thier party, and not let these troublemaker tea partists try and take down this country. Now if both parties could only keep the momentum going and work on reducing spending that will take compromise from both sides. It should not be this difficult.

All they do in Washington is manage by crisis, and Republicans try to blame the President for every evil in our country.
