Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold 'Unfazed' by Government Shutdown, 'Basically A Paid Vacation'

As the Republican-caused government shutdown continues to hurt Texans and the rest of the country, Rep. Farenthold (R-Corpus Christi) is once again reminding us why he is one of the worst things to come out of Texas.

Defending his party's malicious tactics, Farenthold was reportedly "unfazed" by the possibility of a government shutdown, and stated that Congressmembers like himself were "paid the big bucks to figure these situations out," in order to avoid the shutdown that Farenthold failed to avoid.

"Basically a paid vacation," is what Farenthold had to say about the shutdown.

Farenthold and the rest of the Republicans clearly fail to realize the negative impacts their selfish actions are causing the country. Just the figure of 800,000 federal workers furloughed as the result of the shutdown is enough to make anyone angry. In fact, the government shutdown is already affecting Farenthold's district, and here is Farenthold cheering it on without any remorse.
