Goodlatte voted to keep the shutdown, throw the US into default

Sixth District Congressman Bob Goodlatte voted Wednesday night to continue the two-week government shutdown and throw the country into default, triggering who-knows-what economic calamities– because Republicans didn’t get their way on the Affordable Care Act. Compared to Goodlatte, even Republican Congressman Eric Cantor (who voted for the agreement that ended the crisis) was a model of responsibility and good sense.

And Goodlatte expects the voters of the Sixth District to return him to Congress next year? It’s time to say: Not this time, Bob.

Check out Goodlatte’s excellent Democratic opponent in 2014, Bruce Elder.

    Thanks for checking on Goodlatte’s vote on that. Not surprising — he’s a loon — but disappointing all the same. Hopefully. Elder will beat him about the head like a rented mule, come next November.
