Extending sequestration deadline cowardly
I've voted in every election since I turned 18. I can't tell you how disappointed I am as it relates to the sequestration fiasco. After months of having a deadline, the fact that the congressional solution was to extend that deadline is (you pick the adjective) cowardly, inexcusable or just plain wrong. I've never been more disappointed or witnessed a greater travesty than the one Congress has conducted on the American people. Before this fiasco, I couldn't have imagined a scenario where elected officials would put their political party partisanship/propaganda in front of their constituents and country, but I don't see another explanation for what's happened.

This country was built by people who knew their opinions would be different from those across the country, state, township and sometimes the dinner table. This Congress seems to thrive on wanting to destroy those with differing opinions regardless of the effects this will have on their constituents and country. I can't and won't vote for someone who doesn't have the ability to compromise and/or puts political party partisanship/propaganda ahead of their constituents and the country's well-being.
