Congressman Murphy: Political gridlock ‘even worse’ than it... |

Congressman Murphy visits the Palm Beach Civic Association and talks about the gridlock in congress. He says it's worse than we think it is. Ugh. When you check out the article, someone with a "caps lock" problem goes on and on about how our representatives are, well, not representative. And then starts talking about possible use of a guillotine to solve the problem. Click title for link.
 Murphy also blames the federal government for the lackluster economic recovery. The economy needs stability and predictability in Washington. Instead, though, there has been a government shutdown, as well as continuing uncertainty about federal regulation of the financial industry, he said.
Turning to environmental issues, Murphy said he supports coastal protection, Everglades restoration, repairing the dike that surrounds Lake Okeechobee, and constructing natural filters to cleanse the lake’s water supply. He opposes drilling for oil in Florida’s coastal waters.
Murphy defeated tea-party favorite Allen West in the last election.
