The President Obama and his merry Democrats have been fond of stating the Republicans have taken the American people hostage. Yet, upon further review it would appear the President and the Democrats are using children as human shields. Is one any better than the other? I mean if it is wrong to take hostages wouldn't it also be an issue with the use of human shields?
I am in agreement that the Republicans should not have allowed the fight over Obamacare to shut down the government. The Republicans if they wanted to fight should have begun passing their Appropriations bills. Each appropriation bill could have stripped Obamacare funding and let there bew a debate over that but at least the Appropriations bill would have been passsed as is the law of the land. This whole continuing resolution battle is nothing more than kabuki theater. It is a shame that the republicans didn't do their job and pass all 13 individual appropriations bills before the end of the FY. The republicans are wrong in this fight period. They need to get back to debating the budget and not Obamacare specifically. The Republicans hold no right to hold Americans hostage.
I am also in agreement the demcrats are wrong not to engage in negotiations and debate. Smiply staing that is is my way or the highway is pure hog wash. I heard today someone stating that the Demcorats control 2/3's of government and therefdore should get their way. Unfortunately, each party controls about half of government. The Court titls slightly to the right, the excutive is left, and Congress is split. Those are the facts. The House does in fact have the right under the law of the land to state what they will and won't fund. See all appropriation bills will originate in the House. So no, democrats you do not have the right to sit on the sidelines and refuse to negotiate.
Now though what is really appalling is the hypocrisy on the left. The party that rules on emotion and claims to care about grandma and the children like their own certainly has shown their true colors. Harry Reid stated "why would we do that" when asked if he would pass the NIH spending bill if it would save just one child. Now the media jumped to Reid's aid and pushed hard to say of course Reid cares about children that he was only stating he wanted everything in Government funded. However, Reid tried to equate 1100 Government employees with sick children. That is flat out wrong. So also is the fact that Obama would shut down the Amber alert system but continue paying overtime and for fixes to his failed Obamacare exchange system. Isn't Obama and his merry democrats using children as human sheilds to "make it hurt". See the Amber alert system helps locate misssing children and helps communities keep their children safe from predators. Yet this adminstration would rather keep Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" website up and running. It takes a truly sick and deranged person to use children as human shiled and political props. The Democrats can no longer reasonably state their are the caring party when it is Obama and the Demcorats that are doing everything they can to make the children hurt.
I am disgusted with both political parties and will probably vote for write in Candidates for all federally elected office. My write in votes will go to my friends and family. People that I know to be interested in taking care of their friends and neighbors. We need to stop voting for the politicians that make politics their career and start voting for the reluctant politican that would serve the people. Our political party's have ruined this great country and we the people need to make the changes necessary to hold the politically corrupt accountable. The taking of hostages and holding children as human shields are sick and disgusting methods used by elitists more interestd in power than the people they represent.
