Don't let GOP radicals win

October 4, 2013 

After watching the circus for the last four days in Washington, I have a question: How can the Tea Party Republicans deny Democratic representatives the right to bring a bill to the floor for a vote?

Every American should be appalled to know their representatives were denied the right to have a voice in the House. We are not a Republican or Democratic country. We are the United States.

I am so proud of our president for standing up against the new Republican Party, many of whom ran on the promise of destroying our government.

I hope and pray voters next year remember who is denying their right to be fairly represented in our government. We cannot and must not allow this radical new party to destroy our country anymore.
