To the editor of THE EAGLE:
President Bush was flown in a military aircraft and landed on a Navy carrier. George stood on deck dressed in full military flight suit and declared: mission accomplished. He was implying that he had just flown in a combat mission. That hoax was all a sham. Bush was never in combat nor did he have flight status. That sham was not paid for by the Republican Party but by tax dollars. The Republican Party got what it sought; to dupe the general public at the public’s expense.
John Boehner has also landed, declaring, mission accomplished. The Republican Party cost this country $24 billion in lost revenue, and the world economy even more. If Fitch downgrades U.S. bonds to less than AAA rating there will be additional havoc to pay. Harder to borrow and increase the cost to borrow. The entire world has been negatively impacted. Ted Cruz is now able to pull his head out of a Dr. Seuss book to declare we will have another go at this in January.
The Affordable Care Act is law, voted on and passed in 2010. George Bush said the Constitution was only a piece of paper, worthless, which can be said of the Republican Party.
