Denham constituent disgusted by shutdown

October 2, 2013 

To Jeff Denham:

While I have no doubt that you are receiving a lot of “stay the course” emails from the tea party, let me assure you that many of your constituents are disgusted by the pusillanimous behavior of the Republican Party.

Shutting down the federal government in a fit of pique is not what we expect from a party that expects to run the country eventually. How will you react when a Democratic minority attempts to hold your party to ransom over issues like climate change and green energy?

Your votes to support the government shutdown will be remembered, and there will be a price to pay, I assure you!
