The tea party take on the deal

Two conservative activists and leaders in the tea party movement, Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks and Sal Russo of The Tea Party Express, tell Brooke Baldwin and Jake Tapper their feelings about the resolution to the debt ceiling/shutdown crisis (hint – not happy) and what they might have had their side do differently (hint – not much).

    I wish congress would stop saying that they are working for the people. I have not voted on or had a voice in any of the mess they have put us in with them acting like children over the health package that is already a law. We have lost money closing parks and things our states make money from. They are paying back pay for the worker when they could have been working now they have to be paid to catch up. What kind of sense does this make. We need to vote them all out of there they have done nothing but played and for what They all have insurance and a good job doing nothing but putting up road blocks. They are working for the tea party not the American people and congress should not have that much powder over any president. We need some not so rich people up there to help us what do they know or care about the small people that have nothing but hard times. They are born with gold spoons in their mouths how can they feel what the people feel. The congress want to do nothing but get rich off of the backs of us the people they hate the president because of his skin color they have done nothing but made it hard for him from day one and the people are the ones suffering for that and if that is how they run things how can anyone think the congress care about us. God have mercy on us. God is unhappy about being put out of everything that is why we are having the biblical floods and people being killed things are happening all over the world because God is showing us who is in charge.

    They could have made the same choices when the government was up and running.......only late charge and things associated with that shut down gained anything.......makes me wonder about the "why" in it all......
