According to the liberal news media, the Republicans are solely responsible for the government shutdown. I guess we are supposed to give President Barack Obama whatever he wants, without question. That sounds like a dictatorship, not a democracy.
Let me, a conservative, give my point of view. Obamacare was passed by a Democratic House, a Democratic Senate and signed by a Democratic president, although they didn’t know what was in it, or how it was to be paid for. They promised that it would lower the cost of premiums and that it was not a tax – both lies.
The president has cherry-picked parts to delay to benefit his supporters and Congress. If it is so great, why isn’t Obama, Congress and their staff going on it? Most of the people of both parties don’t want it. The Republicans are simply responding to the will of the people. The tea party is for less taxes and smaller government and the Democrats are for the opposite and we are in worse shape because of it.
