Re "Blueprint aimed to derail health act" (Page A1, Oct. 6): Nefarious is the best word I can use for the actions described in this article. We already knew that big money was behind most of the Republican agenda, but you have done the public a huge service by naming names and revealing the schemes that have led to this intolerable government shutdown.
The organizations described here and their media henchmen, Fox News and hate radio, have brainwashed almost half the public with outrageous lies, scare tactics and propaganda. They have almost succeeded and they're bragging about it. Nothing can be more galling. This article shows how the people have been duped. I hope you reprint it during the 2014 elections when the public will get a chance to rid ourselves of these tea party puppets once and for all.
