House rightly actsto save our nation
The government shutdown is indeed a shame. According to the Constitution, all spending bills must originate in the House, which has the responsibility to decide what money is spent and where to cut. The House provided absolutely everything necessary to fund this government, giving Obama and Reid all they asked for, except Obamacare.
Our national debt is $16 trillion, and Obamacare will increase it to such a degree our nation can’t handle the load. Responsible leaders recognize this.
Obamacare will bankrupt this country, cripple businesses and the economy, cause health care costs to skyrocket, reduce quality and restrict options for care, and open the door to identity theft and confusion. Many of us lost medical care options Oct. 1, and it’ll only become worse when Obamacare is fully implemented. Several who once favored Obamacare have realized the negative implications to individuals and the nation and are now asking Congress to defund this train wreck.
In this nation, We the People are the government. Our leaders work for us; they aren’t to dictate to us. Have we forgotten this basic principle?
The House listened to We the People, acted accordingly and refused to fund Obamacare. The House, wanting the government to function, funded everything else completely!
This isn’t the first time such action has been taken by the House during our history. It acted honorably, fully funding the government while deleting what will shipwreck us. Nothing could be cleaner than acting responsibly for the whole.
Despite the fact the House fully funded the government as is its constitutional authority, Reid in the Senate chose to shut down the government until he gets his way. This is like a child on the playground. Reid refuses to acknowledge the recklessness of funding Obamacare. His temper tantrum has brought shame and harm to us all.
