Re "House relents on debt ceiling" (Page A1, Feb. 12): More than 200 Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to allow the United States to default on the national debt. Only 28 Republicans joined 193 Democrats to raise the debt ceiling.
The Republican Party is willing to allow the United States to default on what we, as a country, owe. Has the Republican Party ever been more useless and obstructionist than it is today?
And yet, most of these people will be re-elected. Amazing.
