    As a soon to be retired man who was planning to visit the Capital in the near future...I am so saddened with what I am watching on CNN at the moment. In what can already be called the T Party (caused) shooting...it is hard to believe this would have taken place if congress was functioning normally. We hope your Republicans can get a reasonable grip on their party...so that all Americans and those from other countries who love your country and visit ... may be safe. Guns and the T Party who seem to have your country hostage at the moment...so sad. Thoughts and Prayers are with all Americans at this time.

    I feel for these people caught up in this political game . Got family suffering with the problem . Fact is Obama is trying to be a dictator and refuses to talk compramize on the issue . He is using federal workers pain to push his dictator mentality . Obama is over stepping his constitutional powers . When he says my way or else at the expence of the people and refusing to talk to the peoples rep's .

    I got news to say about the current members of the U.S. Senate & the U.S. Congress. If a budget isn't passed in 30 days from now all the members of the United States Congress and the United States Senate are to be RECALLED FROM OFFICE & YES I DID SAY RECALLED FROM OFFICE. Also, President Obama and Vice President Biden are to be IMPEACHED & YES I SAID IMPEACHED in the next 30 days too if a budget isn't passed. THIS HAD BETTER BE UNDERSTOOD & YES, I DID SAY THIS HAD BETTER BE UNDERSTOOD! As an employee of the United States Government I have had enough of the political stupidity about the Obama Care stand in the way of the future of the United States Citizens and the future of us United States Government employees. The majority of the United States Citizens did not want the Obama Care Initiative to be passed.

    The American people do not support the teaparty. No one I have talked to support them in any way. Most think they are anarchists and are possible committing treason. When you interview any of them and they say that the american people are against The Affordable Care Act, they are lying. We all must take them very seriously. They pose a real danger to our democracy.
