Next election, say ‘enough’
The tea party Republicans seem to hate President Obama so much they are willing to destroy our country to cancel out one of his legislative successes. We can only be thankful that Reps. Morgan Griffith and Bob Goodlatte and their cronies failed in taking the country down all the way this time.
Goodlatte will, unfortunately, still be able to continue his piecemeal dismemberment and burial of comprehensive immigration reform.
The only way to stop this kind of behavior is to vote these extremist ideologues out of office. If they were only hurting themselves, I would say leave them to it, but their mean-spiritedness is doing great damage to the rest of us and the country as a whole.
If they want to be “lemmings with suicide vests,” as one of their own party described them, so be it, but not in the Congress of all the people of the United States. In the 2014 elections, we should remember what they did, not believe their lies about it, and vote accordingly.
