Meanwhile, Mississippi's Republican representatives must have gotten the news that the polls aren't happy about the lack of government, as they are trying to shuffle the blame chairs on the Titanic:
We have repeatedly voted to keep the government open & offered to negotiate. Pres. & D controlled Senate says no way http://t.co/QPqtJ9Qk2P

via @WSJ: "Mr. Obama's refusal to negotiate suggests that he wants a shutdown—either over the budget or debt limit." http://t.co/0rZb9ycQoO

Cannot in good conscience stand by while this bad law is placed on backs of struggling families and small businesses: http://t.co/eBBpudxGCq

The Senate Democrats are doing nothing, so they need to step up to the table and do their job. #SenateMustAct

Latest vote shows Senate Dems would rather have a #GovtShutdown than make sensible changes to #Obamacare. #FairnessForAll

The senate voted 18 times to go to conference on budget, and the House voted against it.
I encourage Cottonmouth readers to reach out to their representatives and remind them that these practices are bad for business. The livelihoods of Mississippians are at stake.
