Letter: Hastings and shutdown

October 23, 2013 

During a recent congressional hearing on National Park closures caused by the government shutdown, U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings said, "The policies have been arbitrary, inconsistent and ever changing."

Wow, this from a member of the party that could not agree on anything concerning a budget. Sounds to me like the child who killed his parents begging for mercy from the court because he is an orphan!
