Letter Shut down the GOP lies
Re: ‘Dems are the kings of shutdowns’ (Metro, Oct. 3)
Those of us old enough to remember as far back as 1976 don’t remember those government shutdowns because they didn’t take place. These are just more lies coming out of the conservative blogosphere. The Republicans couldn’t defund or repeal the ACA based on its own merits, and they couldn’t get the Supreme Court to declare it unconstitutional, so now they have taken the government hostage, and rather than taking responsibility, they are trying to blame everyone but themselves for the mess that they created.
