After Congress finally reached an agreement on the budget, Stephen Colbert was terribly upset with his hero Paul Ryan for missing an opportunity for another government shutdown: Stephen Colbert Is Furious That Congress Reached A Deal On The Budget:

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert is furious that Congress reached a bipartisan deal on the federal budget that staves off another damaging government shutdown.

"Americans sent Repulicans to Washington to accomplish one thing: zero things," he stated on Thursday night's 'The Colbert Report.' "But with this bipartisan budget we'll have no chance of another government shutdown for two whole years."

"You fools! You can't leave our national parks open that long, it'll give the wolves time to unionize!" he added.

Can you help us out?
