US government is unable to function

The politics in the United States have reached a point where it is no longer functioning for the welfare of the people in the country.

I believe the people in Congress have forgotten the purpose of public service. Congress has previously approve Obamacare, albeit without the support of any Republicans. Instead of tweaking it for the common good, they outright reject the implementation, causing the US government untold problems where it is being held ransom by political parties ideals. 

Is that the role of Congress? Can Congress hold ransom the entire US government credit ratings just because of party ideals?

I think it is time to have a clear separation between what is good for the country and what is good for the party. The actions of the Republicans show that they are only interested in what is good for the party because they rather let the government default on its debt than to wait until they have a clear majority in the government to pass bills that support their policies. 

They are finding ways and means to remove certain policies when they are clearly not in power, wasting everyone's time because all knows that it will happened. This is especially true for the Senator who wasted everyone's time by speaking over 22 hours on something that will happen anyway.

Why are these people voted into Congress then anyway?
