  • Compromising over shutting down the government would set a bad precedent for the future

     Compromising over shutting down the government would set a bad precedent for the future
    While I agree with the notion that everyone in Congress should be out of their job come the next election, I fail to see the logic behind the theory that "both sides are to blame." True, the supporters of the budget, mainly Democrats, are not...
  • Obama blames Boehner for 'reckless' shutdown

    Obama blames Boehner for 'reckless' shutdown
    President Barack Obama used a speech Thursday in Maryland to sharpen his critique of Republican leaders, who responded by pointing a finger at Democrats in a budget showdown that left the government closed for a third day. Speaking at a Rockville...
  • Shame on GOP for using vets as political props

    My heart is broken to see the veterans lined up in their wheelchairs outside the World War II Memorial which was closed off to them due to the shutdown of the our federal government ("'A little yellow ribbon is not going to stop them,'" Oct. 2). My...
  • Fund government, then negotiate

    As the government shutdown reaches the one-week mark, here's how much progress has been made toward restoring order in Washington: Not much. At least the House of Representatives demonstrated some consistency when it voted 407-0 to give back pay to...
  • Impeach this Congress

    I am growing increasingly frustrated by not just Republican intransigence on funding the government (as required by the Constitution) but by the ridiculous coverage given to the issue by the media. No, this is not a budget debate. The Affordable Care...
  • GOP to blame for harmful shutdown

    The Baltimore Sun's editorial, "A damaging tantrum," and Thomas F. Schaller commentary, "Government shutdown is the Republicans' fault — period," (Oct. 2) are spot on by blaming this fight on the Republican Party. This is an ideological war that the...
  • Time for Boehner to cut his losses and end the government shutdown

    Time for Boehner to cut his losses and end the government shutdown
    The current row over who's to blame for the latest government showdown brings to mind the story of the two men arguing on a street corner whether the world is round or flat. They agree to ask an amiable passer-by to settle the matter. He ponders the...
  • House passes back pay bill for fed employees

    House passes back pay bill for fed employees
    The House of Representatives approved a bipartisan bill Saturday to provide back pay to 800,000 furloughed federal employees when the government shutdown ends. If approved by the Senate, the proposal would limit the economic impact of the shutdown....
  • Acting responsibly is not a 'surrender'

    Unconditional surrender. That's what House Speaker John Boehner has called it if Republicans go along with President Barack Obama's position that the government shutdown must be halted and the debt limit raised before negotiations over their grievances...
  • The way out for John Boehner

    House Speaker Boehner, so the thinking goes, is held hostage by the tea party members of his caucus. They, plus the more moderate House Republicans who fear tea-party primary challenges, form an effective majority of the Republican Caucus (the "majority...
  • Yes, Republicans, a default would be a really big deal

    Yes, Republicans, a default would be a really big deal
    The latest out of the extreme conservative wing of the Republican party is that a failure of the U.S. government to take the steps necessary to pay all its bills on time would be no biggie. They say we could juggle things around and avoid missing any...
  • GOP is out of touch on the shutdown, debt ceiling

     GOP is out of touch on the shutdown, debt ceiling
    Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul for too long have lead the GOP into believing their claim that the debt ceiling and government shutdown issues won't cause an economic calamity ("Ted Cruz wins by losing," Sept. 27). All well and good senators,...
