    'A little yellow ribbon is not going to stop them'

    Congress: Do your job
    With the shutdown dragging along and no discernible progress coming out of Wednesday's meeting between President Barack Obama and Congressional leaders, Republicans bemoaned the Democrats' unwillingness to negotiate. They'll negotiate with the president...

     A high school view of Washington's gridlock
    As a senior in high school, it is very disappointing to see how our leaders in Washington are not doing their jobs ("Congress: Do your job," Oct. 3). In school, the value of working together is taught, and my family has stressed cooperation to get...
  • Hijacked by the tea party

    I salute letter writer William Akers' brilliant description of congressional Republicans ("Gangster tactics from the House GOP," Oct 1). Republicans have allowed their far-right, extremist wing — the tea party — to hijack the GOP and to...
  • 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...
  • GOP to blame for harmful shutdown

  • 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...
  • The curtain is poised to fall on the American republic

     The curtain is poised to fall on the American republic
    Congress is well on its way to proving Arnold Toynbee's assertion that civilizations are not murdered but, instead, commit suicide. I do not expect Congress' tea party members to have a world view, so I'm certain they have no idea that nations have been...
  • Federal retiree blames Tea Party for shutdown [Letter]

    Editor: This Federal government shutdown is the latest antic by the Tea Party Republicans to achieve by sheer force what they did not achieve in the most recent national elections and cannot achieve by attempting to extort concessions not only from...

    Obama reaping a long-awaited backbone bonus [Commentary]
    It may have been a long time coming, but President Barack Obama's decision to stand up to the obstructionists in Congress that led to the 16-day government shutdown in October has begun to pay off. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan,...
  • Not another debt limit fight [Editorial]

    Not another debt limit fight   [Editorial]
    Well, so much for the return of reason to the Congressional budget debate. Even before the ink was dry on the bipartisan agreement that is supposed to stabilize the budget debate for the next two years — and before the Senate has even voted on the...
  • 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...
