To the Editor:
There is so much bemoaning by the GOP about the fiscal cliff and constant reiteration of jobs and the economy.
First of all, the GOP created this fiscal cliff as a stick it to the Democrats move, and now it is backfiring on them.
This clearly shows that the GOP cannot govern, which is why we are in this mess to begin with and it was they who did not know how to solve the problem and created a super committee to do their job. Well, the super committee did their job and now they do not like what is about to take place, but instead of compromising (gasp), they continue to throw temper tantrums, point fingers and say “no” like three year olds. Get real!
The GOP also has been talking, talking, not acting or creating jobs for four years now. Obviously, they again, do not know how to do this either or are not the least bit concerned, or their would have been jobs created, Americans working, and the deficit shrinking.
Also note, they have never offered a “livable wage or increase in wages” as a solution to the so-called “dependency” problem they claim we have.
Democrats are not your problem, Republicans have been (i.e. Reagan-deficits, Bush Sr.-deficits, Clinton-balanced budget, Bush Jr.-near economic collapse.).
The next Republican president elected (a prediction here) will equal total destruction of the United States.
Need I say more?
Time to wake up people. Party loyalty is not important, we are! We are the country.
