Work with Obama

To the Editor:

While President Barack Obama was being sworn in, Republicans were meeting to discuss how to destroy him. Their decision was to vote “no” on everything he planned to accomplish – even if it was something they themselves voted for in the past.

The GOP has filibustered more than 300 bills that would help Obama and the country. Obama’s jobs bill that would add more than 2 million new jobs has been sitting on Speaker John Boehner’s desk for more than a year, yet the GOP will not pass it. Mitch McConnell, minority leader of the Senate, has admitted the only goal of the GOP is not the economy or jobs, but preventing Obama from a second term.

We must provide Obama with people in Congress to help him accomplish his goals of moving our country forward. That is why I am voting for Democrat Dennis Anderson for the 14th Congressional district. He will work with Obama, not against him.
