Republican roadblocks are not helping country

Let us not forget how much we appreciate the good work our Republicans are doing in the House of Representatives to move toward a balanced budget.

Here are just some of their efforts: Stripping the “unneeded” food stamp program from the farm bill. Definancing Obamacare. People should buy their own medical insurance. Reducing Medicare and Medicaid expenses. Too many people want a free ride.

Perhaps all the money saved can improve our military budget. One never knows who we will need to fight to put them in their place.

We know how important it is to keep the House of Representatives in Republican hands. If Democrats take over, President Obama would take credit for moving the country ahead. We Republicans do not want that.
