Letter: US still paying for unfunded wars, bailouts

Republican strategist Mike Murphy placed the blame on the partial shutdown of our government on what he called "the stupid wing of the Republican Party."

I think Forrest Gump said "stupid is as stupid does." While the stupid wing's politicians and their owners Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch and their supporters in China and Russia are making tons of money, it is a win/win for this axis of evil. For the rest of us and our nation, it is lose/lose.

The stupidity rests with Americans that let these people mess up our country. Find the gains made by the axis of evil and we'll find the reasons for the shutdown.

Let's looks at the axis puppets' reasons for the shutdown which were health care reform and debt.

Fox News Channel reported that health care premiums have gone up 150 percent over the past 10 years. This increase takes away thousands of dollars per American family a year that would be spent in other areas of our economy. The stupid wing is against Obamacare, but a majority of Americans look forward to Obamacare saving them money on their premiums.

America is still paying for the GOP's two unfunded wars and other unfunded legislations plus bailout needed after the GOP wrecked the U.S. economy. The GOP catering legislation that outsources jobs and lowers wages just to please their owners has also put millions of Americans in government assistance programs. The GOP wants to damage America with a "dine and dash" maneuver on money they spent.
