That is why they don’t worry about governing, the budget, or even keeping the government functioning. The Teapublicans are concerned with nothing but taking over the rest of the government of the United States. And they say so themselves:

As a two-term chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, Rep. Pete Sessions has never been known for reaching across the aisle.
In the year since relinquishing that gig and taking the gavel of the Rules Committee, the Texas Republican is still focused on politics and elections — and scoring points for the GOP.
And right now, he’s got one target in his sights.
“Everything we do in this body should be about messaging to win back the Senate,” he said. “That’s it.”

It’s not the first time we have heard such statements. But lots of Americans keep acting as though these power-hungry motherf***ers are kidding, or don’t really mean it. (Remember THIS? ) Wake up, peeps, they really do. And they show it, every day. By ignoring the needs of the nation and spending 100% of their time on partisan politics. What other reason could there be for acting thus?

There isn’t another reason. Their words and deeds align with the reality: “Republicans ” are focused on taking complete control of the entire nation, and the lives of the people who inhabit it (and that means US, Gentle Reader). Vote them out before they accomplish their clearly-stated goal – a coup.
