Reid cares more about Obama legacy than American people

DEAR EDITOR:

The House of Representatives already sent four government funding bills to the Senate and Harry Reid refuses to allow them to the floor for a vote! Harry Reid is refusing to negotiate with House Republicans – he cares more about preserving the president’s legacy than protecting the American people. A majority of Americans don’t want Obamacare. Even unions don’t want the law. The Obama Administration awarded Big Business with a delay. Congress was given a special exemption. It’s time for equality under the law. What about “We the people...” When will Congress start listening to us?

The whole problem is that our president who seems more interested in his golf game than looking after the country, simply does not know how to lead. He is only good at making speeches with a teleprompter. He despises the military, is sympathetic to the Muslims, and loves to exert power. Heaven help us. Oh, forgot, the most loathsome on his "hate" list is Republicans because they are not afraid of standing up to him.

@can't govern: Our president was able to get the most comprehensive legislation passed since The Civil Rights Act. Every president for more than the last fifty years has talked about health care for all. The GOP just doesn't like the man who was able to get it done. If George 1 or 2 or "King Ronnie" had worked on it AT ALL, you would have been kissing the appropriate ring. The problem is, a black, liberal man with a Muslim name dared to become and REMAIN president and you can't stand it.

The de-funding of The Affordable Care Act has been the only reason the GOP/Tea Party dominated House of Representatives bothered coming to work in the last two years. Those 40 votes all failed. It was a losing fight from the start. The House has wasted our time and our money in a fight that they were not going to win, but they went on and on and on with it anyway. The GOP will pay the price in the mid term elections and the presidential election of 2016. The overall opinion of the GOP is at an all time new low and it couldn't happen to a better group.

PS @ Cant't: Every president has used teleprompters since the technology has been available. Could you memorize a 30 minute presentation, then deliver it while looking into a camera? You and others sound just plain stupid when finding fault involving the use of teleprompters. It is a true measure of your total lack of understanding and depth.

The majority of Americans believe that the GOP is at fault involving the current problem in our government.

"We the people", represented by a sitting congress and president passed and signed into law The Affordable Care Act. That act, then withstood a Supreme Court test. The current Republican House of Representatives which represents the people have voted on the repeal of The Affordable Care Act 40 times, all of those efforts have been unsuccessful.

Teressa, just how much more representation do you want?

"We the people" spoke loudly in 2008 and again in 2012. According to the GOP fuzzy math, there was no way President Obama was going to be re-elected in 2012.

We have spoken!
