Re "Dump extreme politicians" (Letters, Aug. 11): Kristine Johnson states in her letter that "the House of Representatives chooses to do nothing to resolve our most pressing problems." Does Ms. Johnson realize that the House has sent about 100 bills to the Senate that were completely disregarded by the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid with no compromise and no discussion?
The president has said that if he does not like a bill, he will veto it. The Senate, in the hands of the Democrats and this president have never made any attempt at discussion or compromise. The president has made it clear it is his way or no way.
My questions are: Who is the party of obstruction?, Who is the party of "no"?, Who are the extreme politicians?
