To the Editor:
We all have to ask this politically naive question – why can’t the Congress pull in the same direction, and why is there now a shutdown of non-essential services?
The reason is only one. Obamacare! This is the single most contentious issue that has torn the country in half, with the GOP being blamed for it, although some polls show the majority of the population does not want this malady commonly called Obamacare.
This confused obsession of Barack Obama has caused the country a ton of grief, worldwide embarrassment and split the nation – not along party lines, but between those entrepreneurs, captains of industry and individual citizens who do not wish for Obamacare, and those who want to continue to have the government take care of them, personally, individually and eternally.
The GOP is asking for a one year delay, so that if there is to be a bill at all, it will be a more equitable one for all the people. However, those in Congress still drinking the Kool-Aid offered by the president will follow him to the death, not caring for one micro moment how the majority of the population feels about this most divisive issue.
The GOP is attempting to act in accord with the wishes of the majority. However, since the Dems have the microphones, TV cameras and the liberal media totally on their side, they blame the GOP and those in this country that solely rely on Big Brother to comfort them – at the cost of those who do not agree with the Party of the Donkey.
One man and his warped ideas have split the common folk into a nation of opposing and bitter citizens, all the while successfully and cleverly blaming the opposition party and that, my fellow patriots, is totally unconscionable.
