Republicans should seek more than ‘destroying Obama’s agenda’
To the Editor:
Here’s a question for any parents reading this. How many times could you catch your child in a lie before saying, “That’s enough! I no longer believe anything you say!”. Or, how about employers? How many times could you discover that some employees were spreading truly malicious lies about your company before you would fire them?
That is exactly what our Republican Senators and Representatives are doing in an effort to derail healthcare reform. And, when one lie is exposed, they just come up with another one. They obviously don’t respect us at all if they think this is what they’ve been elected to do. And, are you just the tiniest bit suspicious when you learn that the insurance companies are spending $1.4 million dollars a day to kill reform? A large part of that money is going directly to the congressmen and women’s campaign war chests. So, not only are these politicians obstructing any progress that might improve our nation, but they are also ensuring that any challenger next election will have an insurmountable task of unseating these incumbents.
When the Republicans decide that destroying President Obama’s agenda is more important than working to improve our county, then it is time to hand them a pink slip instead.
