Letter: Corporate elite own politicians

The government shutdown is due to the lack of leadership, partisan politics over effective governing, failure to honor the demands of the people who put them is office, the only things they can agree on are their own exemptions from the laws they pass that the rest of us most follow and obey. Time to replace all of them ( including our three stooges) they are owned, lock stock and barrel by the corporate elite and they are doing exactly as they are told. Hope I won’t be around when this country comes crashing down, because we are headed for the cliff. Hang them all.
