Readers Respond: Shutdown averted

While legislators were able to head off a government shutdown, readers found very little to celebrate. Here's what we heard.

“It disgusts me how our national politicians act and spend our money. The $38 billion was nothing to cut -- a pathetic effort to correct previous run-a-way spending. The U.S. economy is like the Titanic. We haven’t hit the iceberg yet, but it’s visible through the fog.”

“Partisan political grandstanding with the common good at stake can't be very positive! It really makes you wonder what is going on inside the Beltway.”
