On President Obama's first inauguration day republicans gathered at a meeting and vowed to say "NO" to everything this President would try to accomplish. Well America we now see how much they meant it because they are doing just that.
Remember 2011 when republicans caused our countries credit rating to drop for the first time in history because of their hostage taking and obstructive behavior. This is called extortion. We then watched the GOP controlled house vote "NO" to an unprecedented amount of bills put on the floor. If President Obama had anything to do with it they would say "NO" even when he tried putting bills that they previously agreed to or initiated. They held up and voted "NO" to jobs bills when we had an unemployment rate over 9%.
We are now watching their destructive and very hateful behavior go from bad to worst. In spite of an entire GOP controlled house working against this President he still managed to get the affordable care act for americans. He also brought the auto industry and housing back, our deficit has been cut in half, the jobless rate dropped from over 9% to a little over 7% and captured or killed more than 20 of the most wanted terrorist making our country safer. So you see America "no weapons formed against him shall prosper."
We now see this GOP controlled house of horrors continuing to do everything they can to make the Presidents eight years be disastrous. The interest and safety of the american people and the country is NO LONGER on the GOP's agenda.
The republicans started with the sequester. They have now moved to shutting the country down WITHOUT VALID CAUSE. Our brave soldiers who gave their lives for every last one of us including Boehner and the GOP controlled house, families are being denied bereavement pay for burying their dead loved ones. Children with cancer are being denied treatment because funding stopped because of the shutdown. Food supplies imported to this country are not being inspected allowing other countries, even terrorist to send any kind of tainted food to us. FEMA employees furloughed leaving the country unprotected for natural disasters and 800,000 dept. of defense employees furloughed. The disastrous stories are coming in everyday from americans whose lives have been affected.
What are republicans in the house saying about this? Some of the comments have been "its not that big a deal," "consider it a paid vacation," "democrats are making it sound worst than it is."
If you thought that was bad enough, the GOP controlled house now threatens to use the debt ceiling on Oct. 17 as leverage (ransom) to get everything that they want. Using the debt ceiling will stop social security checks, civil service pensions, medicare payments and a host of other catastrophic results. Even some republicans, economist, big business owners all say it will reak havoc on our great nation.
Some republicans in the house are now changing their minds and want to vote to stop the government shutdown after watching all of the devastation it is causing the american people and the country. As of last week they had 22 republicans who want to stop the shutdown. This would be enough republicans along with the democrats to stop the government shutdown. Not only has John Boehner and the tea party held the country under siege by shutting down the country, they now refuse to put the bill on the floor and allow the house members to vote to stop the government shutdown in fear of it PASSING.
Our great nation is under siege by the weakness and spinelessness of John Boehner and by an extremist, out of control, corrupt tea party that is terrorizing our country. This is NOT about negotiations people. This was a long time well planned deliberate attempt to do what the tea party vowed during their campaign - "shut the government down" and "take their country back."
America under siege by an extremist party that has infiltrated our house of representatives. The Tea Party stands for "TERRORIZING EVERYTHING IN AMERICA.
America's at RISK. We BETTER get this one right people.
ALL EYES ON MIDTERM ELECTIONS.
