Out of shutdown came a winner: Rep. Simpson

The U.S. Government shutdown vote finally produced a winner from Idaho – Republican Rep. Mike Simpson. This congressman had what it takes to vote for the people and for all the right reasons. He jeopardized his job knowing that the Tea Party dictatorship now ruling our U.S. House of Representatives will try to unseat him in the next election. This was a democracy, and dictatorships set up to control the vote in our Congress need to receive a rude awakening. This situation is as close to treason as it can get.

The other three Tea Party followers from Idaho don’t belong in our Congress. Rep. Raul Labrador is playing political games with people’s paychecks as long as they are not his. Senator Risch has posturing down to a science and he actually thinks that’s what we are paying him for. Sen. Crapo can’t even keep track of his own campaign funds, and with a DUI and no driver’s license, voting is very inconvenient.

If Sen. Crapo is still looking for his lost 250 grand, I’m wondering about his qualifications. I sure wouldn’t want him handling my money.
