Re "Debt crisis likely to postpone billions in aid" (Page A1, Oct. 14): I was a Republican. But my comments are meant for all politicians. Each of them has placed us in the present mess we are in. When this is over I hope one of them will show some courage to write legislation that will not allow this to happen again.
They close down the government and inconvenience everyone, then keep paying government employees because they need to be paid. Here is a flash for you -- it's not our fault, either.
Quit crying "they won't negotiate." Quit, go home, move over and let someone else take your place. None of you deserve a job.
