Letter: Obama, Reid refusing to negotiate

Editor:

Obama is trying to blame conservatives for the government shutdown. But he and Harry Reid are the ones refusing to negotiate.

Harry Reid refuses to negotiate with House Republicans on Obamacare, to delay it for one year, as Obama has done for big business and others.

He gave Congress a special exemption.  What about the “We, the little people?”  It’s past time for “equality” under the law.

The House sent multiple government funding bills to the Senate that defunded and delayed Obamacare. America doesn’t want the health care takeover. Yet Harry Reid refuses to negotiate with the House. He’d rather protect Obama’s legacy than “protect your country” from what Democrats call a “train wreck.”
