President to blame for shutdown

— — My observation is that the president states the shutdown is the Republication’s fault, but that is not an honest statement. The Republicans stated they did not want the government to close down. They want the Senate to go by the law.

If you like Obamacare then don’t ask for waivers like the union did, who stated they couldn’t afford it.

Nancy Pelosi is a rich woman off of the poor people’s taxes. She can afford what she states is the law. The Senate should not get a waiver and expect any difference for we, the people.

The shutdown is on Obama’s shoulders.
