Time to pay our debts.

Dear President Obama,
Why aren’t you insisting that the CR Bill be in Conference Committee? This is the next step when the congress and the senate can’t agree on a major bill. At least the committee would be talking while you, the congress and the senate are playing your game. You had three years to present legislation to correct some of the problems with the ACA and you neglected to do it. You have forced congress to take this action because of major flaws in the ACA so you are as much the blame as they are. If you are pulling Reid’s strings, then pull the one that will start the conference process.
Going through this calamity over the ACA that isn’t doing what it was intended to do is a slap in the face to all Americans especially the people that are out of work and the people that won’t be covered by the program. I can’t believe that you actually read the bill or had an intelligent staff review it and point out the pitfalls and the strong attributes of the bill. Your decisions to exempt and delay portions of the bill does not demonstrate equality and democracy. A bill that is passed by the congress and the senate should not be altered by one person and the rules should not be altered to accommodate different groups in the population. The implementation of this controversial law has caused direct grief and misfortune to America.
You, the congress and the senate should pass a clean CR and Debt Ceiling Bill and let the ACA move towards its own destruction in its present form. The major contributor to this is the government’s lack of control in fiscal matters especially the waste of money spent on two wars that produced nothing but more controversy and long term debt. We have an obligation to pay our debts and we should, but we should also figure a way to control ourselves and our fiscal matters.
This game of stupidity has stopped other important legislation and medical treatment for children and veterans. It has added to our foolish image around the world and I am sure our enemies are pointing out the pitfalls of our democracy.
