Brave members of our National Guard have been furloughed. Life-saving scientific research has been stalled. Loans to small businesses have been frozen.

Standing on the 98-year-old Sewalls Falls Bridge, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster gestured to the sharp curve leading up to the single-lane span across the Merrimack River.
