GOP should stop holding country hostage

7:20 PM, Sep. 30, 2013  |  Comments

Mr.Wirtz says that a majority of the people don't want the Affordable Care Act. The majority of people I talked to say different. I guess it all is in who you ask.

He also states that this country is supposed to be run by majority rule. Fine let's look at some things that the majority of Americans want that the Republicans who are in the minoritry right now refuse to give them. About 92 percent want background checks and better gun laws. A majority want same-sex marriage. A majority want women to have the right to choose. A majority want medical marijauna laws. A majority want clean air and water, and want the 1 percent to be paying higher taxes. I could go on and on.

So if we want our laws based on majority rule, then minority Republicans should stop obstructing and do the will of the majority of the people, not just the ones who bought them. Stop holding the country hostage if you don't get 100 percent of what you want. That's what the majority is saying.

We don't have to worry about foreign governments trying to sabotage our country, both economically and our infrastructure. We have the right wing doing it for them because they don't want to rule by majority. They want it their way or no way. Why do you think a majority of the people in this country are losing jobs and wages. Why do you think a majority of our highways and bridges are failing and crumbling. Because the minority Republicans refuse to use taxpayer money for anything else but more tax breaks for the rich.

Or for more corporate welfare, which a majority opposes. If they are serious about cutting spending, then every dollar cut from entitlements for the poor and middle class should be equaled by cuts for corporate welfare queens. So says the 99 percent majority.
