Letter: House Republicans pitch a fit

October 4, 2013 

The House Republicans’ shutting down the U.S. government is like a small child throwing a temper tantrum because the child cannot have a candy bar. Like all temper tantrums it is best to ignore the tantrum and not respond. Just let the tantrum run its course. To do anything else is to encourage more temper tantrums in the future.
