Health care act is back to haunt us

Dear Congressman Boehner, thank you for not blinking. I know the politically correct wisdom is to blame the Republican House, especially the so-called Tea Party candidates, for what is being called "the government shutdown."

Remember, when you point a finger at someone you have three fingers pointing back at you. The lame duck Democratic Congress which pushed the Affordable Care Act through, after the midterm elections in 2010 demonstrated the American people were not pleased with what the current administration was doing, is to blame for the shut down. When Congresswoman Pelosi made her infamous statement, "We have to pass it so we can see what's in it" the handwriting was on the wall.

The AFA is about government control not about helping the roughly 11 percent of the population that was without health care, penalizing the 89 percent who had it with many having seen their jobs go to part time so employers could avoid the morass created by this hastily "passed without reading it" legislation. The people had spoken in sending legislators to Washington who did not want to see the government having more and more control of our lives.

Passing the ACA was a heinous disregard of the wishes of the people of this land and it has come back to haunt those who did it. Don't tell me you have forgotten how this legislative nightmare got passed?
