Six Years Too Late, Media Call Congressional Republicans ‘Traitors’

[Dailykos] “Traitors.” That’s the word the New York Daily News, certainly no friend of President Obama, used on Tuesday to describe the 47 Republican senators who signed an unprecedented letter to the Iranian leadership designed to sabotage the current nuclear negotiations. Sadly, the Daily News and other media outlets are about six years late in reaching that conclusion.

 

After all, with their record-setting use of the filibuster, unprecedented obstruction of judicial and executive branch nominees, threatened and actual government shutdowns, and most of all, their unheard of debt ceiling hostage-taking, Republicans have been undermining the federal government and the U.S. economy since Barack Obama first took the oath office in 2009.

 

Consider, for example, the GOP’s recurring threats to trigger a sovereign default by refusing to raise the debt ceiling. Until Republicans captured the House in the 2010 midterms, no party has had both of the votes and the intent to block a debt ceiling increase and thereby produce what new Speaker John Boehner deemed “financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy.”

As the Republicans continue to destroy any semblance of democracy with their government shutdown, a new crisis looms: debt-ceiling showdown.

 

The NY Times reported recently the shutdown was months in the making, planned by a secret cabal [junta] of right-wing groups led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese and bankrolled by David Koch.

 

It is difficult to believe that the average American would support this incongruous juxtapositions that has cataclysmic consequences to all Americans; Republicans, Democrats and Independents, if they “only knew the actual truth.”

 

It is self evident that the Voters need to stop being pawns in the pernicious Political Well that may not only be baleful to them but also their children. Americans need to stop being brainwashed and uninformed and become cognizant as to what, the virulent policies the Politicians they support, is doing to America.

Republicans Obamacare Coup d’état shut down the Government; Now, they have resorted to Russian Roulette with the Debt Ceiling!

Speaker of the House John Boehner, allowing the Tea Party Extremists to place him in the most precarious of predicaments, of using this unorthodox method of tying the defunding of the Affordable Care Act in order to keep the Government operating, is not only bad because they don’t like Obamacare or President Obama or both, but, if the President allows this type of extortion to take place, it would set a precedence that would be detrimental to America, irrespective of whether or not a Republican or Democrat is in the White House in the future.

 

Obama’s haters may think that the Government being shut down and the debt ceiling on the line may be a good thing because of their disdain for this President, however, if these same people would stop and think for a moment and ask the question; “what if the next President is a Republican and the House of Representatives are controlled by Democrats, wouldn’t they possibly use the same unethical means to obtain their way or the high-way?

 

Setting aside the entire present dilemma at the moment, if such methods to dismantle a legal bill or any other legal bill for that matter are successful, it would be the same as “opening a can of worms.” Now it is Obamacare, but should Boehner and his Out-of-Control Extremists prevail with their black mail, next it could be Medicare, Medicaid, A Woman’s Right to Choose or even Social Security. As recent as 2007, former President George W. Bush included in his Budget a request to privatize Social Security. Just imagine, since 1935 when Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced Social Security, no Republican Voted for it and since then to the present time, most Republicans have continued to do everything possible, to either privatize or dismantle Social Security and many of the Social Programs that provide assistance to almost 98 percent of the American People.

 

The same loud-mouths, uninformed, brainwashed irrationals that permeate internecine nonsense, most of them “do collect Social Security; Medicare, Medicaid and Food Stamps!” I am yet to see in the comments, some sensible, well written opinion for why they are against programs such as the Affordable Care Act, rather than the continued phantasmagoric rationales.
