To the Editor:
In case it wasn’t blindingly obvious to everyone, the Democrats don’t want a resolution to the government slowdown or debt ceiling “crisis.”
The evidence is right in front of us.
After the Republican leadership caved in on Obamacare in return for cosmetic changes and an agreement to discuss future budget cuts (not to be confused with real cuts that will never happen), the Democrats countered with a requirement to actually raise the budget for entitlements, welfare, and the programs most important to their non-working constituents.
Here we are, facing what is supposedly the most critical crisis in recent history, and the Democrats are asking for more money!
Someone needs to tell them that America is broke and the solution is not to encourage people on welfare, but to encourage job creators to hire them.
