There will come a time in the future when persons in the current Congress will look back on their lives. As in all cases they will review what contributions they made to the common good. It would be so satisfying to know they helped create jobs, provided health care for every citizen, fostered fair Immigration policies, developed energy policies that made the nation self sufficient, fostered early child education and a host of other tremendous goals that made a real difference in the lives of others. However, those opportunities will not be the satisfying goals that this current Congress can reflect on and savor with pride. Instead as they sit in their rocking chairs they will have to settle for the only signature accomplishment they achieved was that they shut the government down. It will be truly sad for the nation and them that with all of he meaningful opportunities for positive change the only thing they will be able to point to is their ability to be obstructionists.
