Letter to the editor:

Obamacare caused the shutdown

In response to the letter from Dave Starr, “Shutdown is on House’s hands,” blaming House Republicans for the shutdown:

If Obamacare is such a sacred bill, why has President Barack Obama altered it, delayed implementation for big business and given waivers to cronies, the unions and other big donors?

The original bill was passed behind closed doors without any Republican input or votes. Furthermore, no one had a chance to read the 2,200-plus pages — and, as Nancy Pelosi famously said, “you have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.”

Well, now that it has been read, we don’t like what’s in it.

People, wake up! As Jefferson stated, “If your government is big enough to give you everything you want, it is big enough to take away everything you have.”

Obama expects the Republicans to fold under his continual lies and dire threats to the American people.

He is the one who is at fault, along with his cohort in the Senate, Harry Reid, and all the Democratic lemmings.
