Letter: GOP: the party of no, no, no

To the editor:

I read today the Op-Ed by David Shribman on “The cold is coming” (Sept. 21). He says, “the president has lost his gyroscope.” Perhaps he might have said instead that the president has tried doing business with the bigoted and obstructive Congress, whose only purpose in life is not to do the business of the people of the United States, but to say “no, no, no” to everything that our president proposes.

That attitude was made crystal clear when Mitch McConnell said that his purpose as minority leader of the Senate was not to conduct the business of the people of the U.S. but to make sure that President Obama is a one-term president. Obviously he failed in that. Shame on him and all of the other bigoted members of the Republican House.

They have voted 41 times in the House to defund the Affordable Care Act, which is the law of the land and has even been blessed by the Supreme Court. How do you spell “stupid”?
