Congress: Republicans need to stop throwing mud and get to work

I think the latest round of Republican theatrics in Congress (suing the president) demonstrates a real lack of vision for the people of this country [“House GOP sues Obama administration on health law,” Nation & World, Nov. 21].

Throwing mud and sand at the president and all his ideas is not really a viable policy, especially when there is so much to be done. Simply refusing to deal with issues like health care, education, the budget, infrastructure and immigration is not an answer. They cannot simply ignore the work just because they don’t like it.

We cannot let millions of American’s get sick and die because Republican’s are not interested in helping them. They have been given a responsibility and simply refusing to do anything, like some stubborn teenager, is not a solution. This country needs work. It’s time they either get to it, or get out of the way.

Jim Tobin, Oak Harbor
