Letter: Where Ultimate Blame Belongs

To the Editor:

Apparently, House Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, have forgotten what they are there for. Most assuredly it is not to shut down the country. It matters not whether one is left, right or center. They were elected to make the laws, make a budget and not to act like spoiled brats having a tantrum. As a result of their childishness, our fragile economic recovery has come to a standstill and is falling backward.

Yet, who is to blame but the electorate? As Pogo said, “We have met the enemy, and he is us”.
