Don't hold us hostage over health care law

info@islandpacket.comOctober 6, 2013 

Modern day Republicans (read tea party) are a very strange breed.

The Southern variety shakes in their boots over the possibility of having their guns taken away. But since our right to bear arms is the law, this won't happen.

Now they are holding our country hostage because they want to defund Obamacare, denying millions of Americans needed health care. This won't happen either. In case they haven't been paying attention, this also is the law.

I suggest they stop acting like spoiled children and get on with what they were elected to do, govern in a bipartisan way.
