OBAMA & REID’S SHUTDOWN — LIST OF ATTEMPTS BY REPUBS

Oct 7, 2013 by

Heir Obama & Harry Reid and American shut-down!

[10.6.13 – This shutdown is “owned” by Obama and Harry Reid.  Below are the conciliatory steps that the House Republicans have taken to try to resolve the shutdown of the government. It is easy to see that the Democrats want this shutdown because they are trying to blame it on the Republican House members. The Dems think the American people will be stupid enough to accept their lies.  Not so.  The following chronological list proves that the Republicans are the ones who are trying to stop the government shutdown while at the same time trying to defund and/or delay the greatest “train wreck” ever to hit our nation – Obamacare.  It is the Dems and Obama who have refused to negotiate.

 

Again, this is another e-mail that we need to keep handy for the elections of 2014. – Donna Garner]
