GOP should release grip on budget

(Continued)

There are some aspects of the GOP’s intent that should be addressed by both parties. Our national debt has climbed to an unsustainable level. We must find a way to curb our spending. Congress and the president must work side by side on this for the good of the nation.

The thrust of the ACA — to provide affordable health care and health insurance to millions of Americans who cannot afford either — is noble. House Republicans should give up this silly charade that portrays it as something that can be negotiated away. Above all, they should stop holding the federal budget hostage.
