National Republican leaders create roadblock

To the Editor:
The Obama administration averted an economic meltdown in our country that would have made the 1929 crash look like happy hour.
With economies across the interdependent world at stake, remedies require consensus from the best minds available.
The road back is long and hard but not as severe as the period between 1929 and World War II.
The Republican Party leadership represents a road block to problem solving with an attitude of “up with the rich; down with the poor, the elderly, the unemployed.”
Who pays? The middle class.
Titillation rather than hard news from major networks and periodicals fuels a return to office of the same mindset that created America’s disaster in the first place.
Only this time it is more mean-spirited and lethal.
Protecting the enormously wealthy will bring this country down.
The GOP will do anything to bring Obama down, including destroying this nation.
