Shutdown over: What next?
Has racism returned?
The republicans in Congress tried to defund Obama care forty three times .In spite of the fact that that they knew a defunding legislation bill would never pass the Senate and would be stopped by a presidential veto. Since defunding measurers failed, the next tactic was to shut down the government and use the shutdown to force a removal of Obama care. This seems so extreme as to be called irrational. What can possibly explain it?
I believe it is easily explained by the Republican right wing extremist’s inability to accept an Afro-American in the Oval Office. Racism against Afro-Americans has arisen like Lazarus from the dead and is haunting the White House.
