For all you people that are die hard Republicans and who think that the Republicans can do NO wrong and that the Democrats can do NO right. Let’s set the record straight about this government shut down
First of all, Obama was elected by the people, and it was a majority of the people. He introduced legislation for the Affordable Health Care Act, (AHCA) otherwise known as Obama care. During this process, The Republicans were dead set against it.
AHCA was passed and became the law of the and but the Republicans could not accept this. The Republicans took it to the Supreme Court trying to get it thrown out as unconstitutional. The Supreme Court ruled that it WAS constitutional and that the Republicans had to accept that.
Now, let’s jump ahead to the present. When the question of the federal budget came up, LIKE SPOILED CHILDREN, the Republicans said, we will NOT pass any budget unless you repeal the AHCA. The Democrats told them no. This is now law and you cannot change it this way. The Republicans then said that if they could not get it repealed, then they want it to be delayed for at least 1 year. They also stated that if this was not done, they would NOT pass a budget.
When the Democrats told them that it would not happen THE REPUBLICANS HAD THEIR TEMPER TANTRUM, refused to pass a budget and caused a government shut down.
In a condensed version, THESE ARE THE FACTS.
IF YOU OR I DID THIS, IT WOULD BE CALLED EXTORTION. IF A KID DID THIS, IT WOULD BE CALLED BULLYING.
No matter what the Republican leaders say, THEY ARE THE ONES THAT CREATED THIS MESS AND THEY ARE THE ONES THAT ARE KEEPING IT GOING.
I’m sure that like me, there are a lot of you out there that are not happy with some of the laws passed, wether they be local or federal.
NOW IMAGIN JUST WHAT A MESS WE WOULD HAVE IF EVERY ONE OF US COULD BLACKMAIL OUR POLITICIANS FOR EVERY LAW WE DIDN’T LIKE.
