President must learn to negotiate

President Obama is willfully prolonging the government shutdown and spitefully making middle-class Americans suffer [“Obamacare battle rife with ideological irony,” news, Oct. 15].

Just as former President Clinton negotiated with U.S. Rep. Newt Gingrich and President Reagan negotiated with U.S. Rep. Tip O’ Neill for the betterment of America, President Obama should negotiate with the Republicans.

Obamacare is not the answer to problems in the health industry. A centralized command economy is not the answer. Free markets, liberty and consumer choices are the answer.

President Obama, listen and negotiate.

Joseph Lopez, Lynnwood
