Viewpoint: Writer feels Congress is acting irresponsibly
To “spin or lie” are two inter-changeable words that totally shatter “Truth.” Truth is a highly ethical process that allows honorable, honest men and women to convey the facts to each other and then to come to a just solution.
This is not what is happening in Congress this week and it leaves us sick at heart. We are left standing here in a world of hurt while the very people we elected to serve us in trust have thrown us to the wolves…and all for nothing.
Shutting the Government down is the last word in accountability. It is irresponsible behavior and invites chaos for those directly impacted. We wonder if these Representatives continue to get their paychecks while thousands of Federal workers do not. Where is the justice in that? Actually, where is the justice in any of this?
Do they simply trash our Country because they can’t get their way about the Affordable Healthcare Act? They don’t respect our elected President, don’t give a hoot about the thousands of people who would continue to not have health care if President Obama and those that support this Act had not put in place an effective way to fairly administer health care for all American Citizens?
They keep spinning, spinning, spinning the facts, saying: that the American People do not want Health Care, that Health Care is an entitlement rather than a right of all U.S. citizens, that we don’t need Government, that the Affordable Healthcare is going to be run by the government, spending thousands of dollars on despicable and indecent ads to sell their lies to a public that is sick to death of their tactics.
Just how long do we put up with this: the Ted Cruz , John Boehner, Tea Party hysteria and their spinning, spinning the truth while using money from the Koch Bros and other secret donations of millions of dollars to control our beloved USA?
Think Americans. It is the time for us to all be acting responsibly.
