Wake up America!
It’s time to see what is really going on in Washington D.C. And why there is a government shutdown.
Take note of who is really not willing to negotiate. Mr. Obama called a meeting Tuesday with the leaders of the House and the Senate to inform them he will not negotiate, period! Harry Reid has done the same, and refuses to bring one House bill before the Senate for a vote, even though the House has sent several proposals that the Democrats have been demanding. One bill asked to fund the National Health Service to help Children with cancer who are in special experimental programs. Mr. Reids cold hearted reply was “Why should I”.
It is obvious the extent to which this Obama administration will go to cause as much pain as possible by shutting down the WW 2 Veterans Memorial, an open air memorial that is usually open 24 hours a day. Mr. Obama had the gates chained and locked, and sandbags placed on the walks to block the veterans from visiting their memorial. Needless today the Vets forced their way in. Bully for them.
This is clearly vindictiveness on the part of Mr. Obama to do this to our Veterans. The Republican Party offered to pay to keep the memorial open and Mr. Obama and Harry Reid rejected the offer saying “the offer was made to showoff”. What arrogance.
The New York Times reported last Friday that a high ranking official in the Obama White House made the comment “it really doesn’t really matter to us how long the shutdown lasts because we’re winning.” Harry Reid boasted that “we won’t talk until the Republicans surrender.” This is their game plan, and John Boehnner, Speaker of the House, said “This is not a game we are playing.” What a difference in attitude.
The Dems hope to use the shutdown against the Republicans to regain control of the House of Representatives in 2014 and the liberal media is aiding and abetting them in their goal. Ted Cruz, the outstanding young Senator from Texas explained clearly the reason for the refusal to fund Obamacare, and the House in full agreement stood with the Conservatives in the Senate and refused to pass a bill to do so. Even the lead Democrat who helped push Obamacare into law, Max Baucus, now admits this law is going to be a “train wreck”. James Hoffa Jr., President of the Teamsters Union says it is ruining their health care plan and will cost them many jobs, and these were the people pushing for it five years ago. What a turn around. They finally read this disastrous piece of legislation passed by the Democrats without one Republican vote and realized they had been duped.
The Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is far from affordable and will become very clear when the system is finally up and running. Brace yourself for a shock to your wallet when you get the unaffordable prices you will be required by law to pay for your health care. It will be a wake up call and America will finally understand what the House Republicans are trying to protect all Americans from suffering.
