Who’s the real obstructionist?

This is in response to the letter to the editor titled “Westmoreland: The new Obstructionist.” Basically every paragraph was riddled with falsehoods typical of a liberal. Mr. Page compares Obamacare to what Bob Dole and Mitt Romney conceived.

I personally met Bob Dole when I was stationed in Kansas and I heard out of his own mouth what he wanted in terms of health care reform. He favored common sense, free market health care reforms. On his Dole/Kemp website from 1996 he said the answer is not a federal government takeover of the health care industry. Bob Dole supports consumer choice, open enrollment and portability of medical insurance.

Romneycare, in short, was nothing like Romney conceived. This is from the Heritage Foundation website, which stated that by the time the democratic legislation in Massachusetts finished with it, it was nothing like what the Heritage Foundation and Mitt Romney envisioned.

The same old race card used by Mr. Page is really stale. That is what a typical liberal says when he can't debate the points.

Mr. Page likes to call the GOP the obstructionists. But the Senate, led by Democrat Harry Reid, has not passed anything in over two years. And has vowed to never pass anything that comes from the House GOP.

So Mr. Page, who is really the Obstructionist?
