Today, both Senator Charles Grassley and Congressman Steve King voted to have the United States of America default on its financial obligations.  They voted to keep the federal government closed.  They voted to wreck the economy of this country and that of the world.  They voted to once again send this country into a recession, the likes of which we have not seen since 1929.  They voted today to make the lives of all Americans miserable.  That's what Grassley and King voted for today in Congress. 

They have been denied, but what they did was truly astounding.  It was unconscionable.  It was utterly shameful.  Who in the hell are these people?  Where's their humanity?  Where's their decency?  Where's their basic commonsense?

They are a menace.  They are morally bankrupt, and from this day forward they must be hounded relentlessly.  This vote must be hung upon them like a stone albatross. This vote must weigh them down like Titanic's anchor.  This vote must be the epithet on their political gravestones.

They must be laughed at and ridiculed.  They are cowards, and they are worthy of universal condemnation from now until the day they are ejected from office.  Iowa deserves so much better.  Today, their hideous vision for America was rejected, but we must never, ever forget what they tried to do to our country on October 16th, 2013.
