Re “A party with faulty wiring” (Speak Out, Oct. 23):

While the Republican Party has performed, in my opinion, with politics instead of country in mind of late, it takes two or more parties to do what happened in the shutdown.

I seem to remember the Republican Party tactics were first to stop the Affordable Care Act or delay it until it could be implemented without hurting the people/economy. Now we see the president and party scrambling to fix the rollout and some even talking about the very same things the Republican Party tried unsuccessfully to do in the shutdown.

This is supposed to be our country, not a place to play power games in the government. We need to examine who has a history of serving their country for good and not for power or gain, regardless of political party. The ones who are just seeking power need to be removed from office.

As reported by numerous news sources, the Affordable Care Act is doing exactly as predicted, raising costs for consumers drastically.

God and country first, not personal privilege or power.
