Letters: Obama, Democrats to blame for shutdown

President Barack Obama is to blame for the shutdown.
President Barack Obama is to blame for the shutdown.

So, according to the president and the Democrats in Washington, it's the "far-right extremists" who have forced this partial federal government shutdown. Really?

Who was it that rammed a widely unpopular Affordable Care Act down the throats of the American people, then gave waivers to Democrat-friendly corporations and Washington politicians and staffers?

Who's eager to negotiate our security away with our enemies, Russia and Iran, but refuses to negotiate with a Republican Congress?

Who would rather shut down the federal government and impose maximum pain on the American people than give an inch to the Republican Congress?

Obamacare is a vampire that's sucking the lifeblood out of job creation and the economy. We need principled leaders like Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Michele Bachmann to continue to push hard and drive a stake into this monster before it destroys us all.
