Rep. Braley complains about shutdown's impact on House gym's towel service

Congressman Bruce Braley's comment was remarkably ill-timed. I've given him money for his campaign and I want him to win, BUT I expect him to THINK before he opens his big mouth and complains about his own "suffering" due to the Tea Party's government shutdown. I was far more moved by the ice cream store owner on CNN or CBS who cried because the government shutdown of a national park closed her ice cream store of 10 years and ruined her livelihood.
