The government of the United States is slated to shut down in less than two hours from now. The tea party’s demand that Obamacare be defunded is being followed by house Republicans, and leading the charge is Ted Cruz. The right has been after the president ever since he was elected back in 2008. This party stated long ago that they will do everything in their power to derail anything that Obama tries to get put into law.
They have been true to their word, and this stubbornness has brought the country to this point in time. Is this what you call democracy in action? I think not. The Republicans have been lost without a real leader since Reagan left office. They couldn’t get Mr. Romney to look like a viable alternative against the first black man to sit in the oval office; rather than clean it.
We the people have been through a lot of loss since the beginning of the Great Recession, when will the pain go away. HealthCare is something that a greying America, and those with limited income or no income will surely need in the coming decades. We all need to put something on the table in order for this to happen. The fight about it will hurt our children’s children. The future is now, and our leaders are acting like children. The country is being traumatized by people who ” want what they want when they want it.”
I do not look forward to what will be happening in the coming weeks, and months, I like tea but not in my politics.
