Dear President Obama,
The shut down and the impending debt ceiling legislation is making our political system look like the amateur hour, here and around the world. We are fighting over a law that was passed three years ago and have done nothing in the interim to fix the problems that surfaced before its implementation. Quite frankly, no one really knows or agrees with what results the law will produce. There isn’t a federal agency or political party that can accurately predict what will happen as the ACA progresses. The time is here to put this argument aside and let the law stand on its merits or failures. The people will decide that after they experience the actual operation of the law. The insurance company’s execution of the law will be the nail in the coffin or the icing on the cake. IT IS TIME FOR THE HOUSE TO TAKE IT OFF THE TABLE AND AGRUE THE MERITS OF THE CR AND DEBT CEILING LEGISLATION ON THEIR OWN.
Mr. President, stop negotiating with Afghanistan. It is time to bring all the troops home. That country survived for thousands of years before Russia and the U.S. were there and they will continue to survive on their own. Stop any monetary support except humanitarian support that we control and provide. We are a giving nation, but we don’t have to give to their politicians, we give too much to our own.
Khamenei of Iran doesn’t trust you or the U.S. and they are buying time to press their own agenda. They are hoping that you will lift some of the sanctions that are in place. North Korea sang the same song and Clinton caved and we got a kick in the butt. Iran’s hand is out but they are not holding palm, so don’t be fooled by this gesture. The simple fact is they don’t like America.
It is nice that the law was passed to pay the federal employees back pay for the shutdown. What about all the other people that lost paychecks because you and congress wanted to play chicken. You are all the blame for this. This was not a surprise to any of you and no one did anything to head it off. This is a blatant waste of time and money and nothing good will come out of it.
What do you think will happen when tax time rolls around in 2015 and some people might have to pay part of the subsidies back provided for by the ACA? Do you really think people will budget for this possibility? Could this be the nail in the coffin?
