    The GOP just seem not to understand what this has done to their name-brand. The gym reports have been so ridiculous that I am shocked it remains open. No one in GOP caucus must read the poll numbers.

    ALL of the American People are taking a hit. Well, okay, some of the people are. Priorities, Priorities! Families of fallen soldiers, WIC mothers, cancer patients? NO SOUP FOR YOU! BUT, (from Huffington Post) The House gym reserved exclusively for lawmakers remains open during the shutdown. It features a swimming pool, basketball courts, a sauna and steam room. “This job is very stressful and if you don’t have a place to vent, you are going to go crazy (TOO LATE REP. YOUNG!!!) and that’s why I’ve used it all these years,” said Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), who has been a user since 1973. While there’s no towel service available during these tough times, taxpayers are still paying for maintenance and cleaning. The House gym for staff members, however, is closed.
