Letter: Obama's actions in shutdown are 'evil'

EDITOR: The Republican controlled House has already passed a "clean" funding bill. In fact, it cleaned up some pretty dirty actions by the president.

There is no constitutional authority for a president to change a law without a Congressional vote, but President Obama did it anyway. The Obamacare law contains deadlines for compliance and Obama, with no constitutional authority, exempted big-money corporations from compliance but required compliance by the rest of us.

The clean bill from the House simply required that we live by the law of the land. Period. It included funding for Obamacare but required the lawmakers to live according to the actual law and not the whims of Obama. That clean bill was rejected by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the chief obstructionist. He continues to blame Republicans for everything, while he and the president orchestrate the shutdown in the meanest possible ways. The actions against our veterans are costing money, not saving it. The atrocity of withholding funeral funds from families of military killed in action is pure evil, as is the permit granted for illegal immigrants to rally while just blocks away veterans still had trouble viewing their own memorials.

And where is the logic in evicting people from their homes and businesses on federal property? If we do that perhaps we should start with the White House.
