Re "Under pressure, House GOP now weighs debt deal" (Page A2, Oct. 10): This is a big joke being played on the general public by the Obama administration. The president is closing only the parts of government that will frustrate Americans and not the ones that are available to himself and Congress -- like his favorite golf course in Washington.
President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid need to sit down with House Speaker John Boehner and adjust the "Obamacare" start date for a year, as suggested by the speaker. The Obama administration delayed it for big business, why not the rest of the country?
