Tea party recklessly manufacturing problems

Is Sen. Al DeKruif serious in his Oct. 10 piece on the shutdown? Accusing Rep. Tim Walz, a 24-year veteran, of deliberately wanting the shutdown to cause pain and inconvenience to our veterans is a new low, even for the tea party.

Accusing Walz and Democrats of an “all or nothing” approach to the shutdown — from the same party that said it would not fund the government if it didn’t get its way on Obamacare — is particularly ironic.

Walz is doing everything he can to solve problems. The tea party is doing everything it can to recklessly manufacture problems.
