When Republican Lee Terry of Nebraska was asked if he would continue to receive paychecks while the government was shut down and many employees were furloughed, his answer was "Dang Straight."
That, folks, is despicable! That's how he feels. In other words 'To hell with all of you. I don't care about anybody but myself."
Oh, he retracted his statement, and even said he was ashamed he said it. Well, he did say it, and that's his true feelings. An apology at this point is only because he just may have cost himself some votes and some approval points. But those two words spoken by Lee Terry only prove that he is a self-centered, self-serving greedy politician who feeds his own agenda and he doesn't give a damn about the people who elected him.
It's wise to remember that an apology after breaking someone's nose, does not heal the nose. I can only hope that his constituents remember his words when he comes up for re-election.
