LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Delay shows shutdown fault Obama’s

It is so ironic that President Obama has invoked yet another mandate delay in this health care business (“Obama defends delays as easing Obamacare’s burden,” Web, Feb. 11).

Recently, he had allowed the government to shut down because he would not grant a delay for which the Republicans in Congress had been advocating.

While the left likes to blame Republicans for the government shutdown, it is now obvious that the latest shutdown was caused by the president, yet Mr. Obama now by his own “pen” did exactly what Congress was asking.

The president does not have the best interests of the American people at heart. If he did, he would delay the entire Obamacare albatross.

What will it take for voters to see through his charade?
