Minnesota Government Shutdown and The U.S.

This is just the beginning. The federal government is going to do the same thing very soon if they don’t straighten out their act. When will these politicians learn to compromise, and when will they learn right from wrong? Some things are more important than helping the rich and worrying about getting your pride hurt. I have to agree with many of the comments that the politicians are acting like children, and I’ve told them so through e-mails. They really don’t care what the people want or need, as long as they can protect themselves from us. It is unconstitutional for them to give themselves anything that ‘We The People’ can’t have, and likewise, it is unconstitutional for them to keep themselves from getting anything (like punishments, bad policies, different retirement/healthcare plans…) than they want to burden the rest of us with.
I believe that their popularity contest should be taken care of by taking the responsibility away from them and given to the voters. If they can’t get their job done within a reasonable amount of time, the issues need to go on the ballot as each separate issue per vote, and each voter needs to make their decisions, over-riding the bad politics that have become so common. Also, the voters will decide on replacement politicians, on the same ballot, who will replace the ones currently in office, as soon as the budget is passed. If they don’t pass the budget before the next election cycle, they will not be allowed to ever run for ANY government office again.
Also, When a government shutdown occurs, the first people that should lose wages and benefits are the politicians who are being paid to make those decisions. They should be told that they have already been paid for the job that they were required to finish, without further pay until the job is done. The only benefit that they would be allowed is emergency medical. Even funeral expenses will come out of their insurance and savings, not the tax payers pockets. While all other employees would be fairly compensated for the shutdown, the politicians would not be allowed to be repaid for their wages or benefits…EVER. If they keep their portion of the government, shutdown for more than a week, they will not be allowed to have their names on the ballot for the next voting period.
They may argue many, or all of these points, that it wasn’t their fault, but someone elses, but it is all of them that are holding our country back, and should equally be punished for their part in the destruction of our states and country.
