Stephen Davis in his letter (March 13, “Why GOP loves ‘fiscal cliff’ “) writes that Republicans are dancing in the streets and that draconian cuts in government are the Republican mantra for four years. He goes on and writes that they are obstructionist and refuse to participate in a two-party system.
Well, Mr. Davis has it wrong. For four years President Barack Obama has not come up with a budget and the Senate, that is controlled by the Democrats and lead by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has not come up with a budget nor has he allowed any budget that the House of Representatives came up with to be brought to the floor of the Senate for a vote; and yes, the House of Representatives is controlled by the Republicans.
So you see, it is the Senate Democrats and President Obama who are the obstructionists and refuse to participate in the two-party system. They are the ones who want us to fall off the fiscal cliff so more people will be dependent on the government handouts.
