Time to end federal shutdown

Arroyo GrandeOctober 14, 2013 

If the GOP is really concerned about the nation’s deficit, they would have voted to end the government shutdown before it ever began. This shutdown is reported to be costing the American taxpayer $300 million per day. Speaker of the House John Boehner, bring the vote to the House, for the good of the American public, and let this ideological standoff end.
