Letter: Resignation request

November 12, 2013


To the editor:

I read in the Journal-World, quoting Sen. Pat Roberts on Kathleen Sebelius about the Obamacare website,”Your main goal should have been to protect the Americans, to lessen their risk and to insure their safety … I repeat my request for you to resign.”

This from the man who, as head of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, did everything he could to stonewall the true information about intelligence concerning the proposed invasion of Iraq? Because of his decision to be loyal to the Republican Party, rather than the safety of the American people, as well as the Constitution, which he was sworn to uphold, he helped start a war in which tens of thousands of people died, including thousands of Americans, and a trillion dollars was wasted on a war that was started on false information. Roberts blocked the true information from seeing the light of day.

Sir, I request for you to resign.

Is it true that our govt hired the company fired by Canada for botching their health care web site?

Last year, the Canadian province of Ontario fired CGI and canceled a $46 million contract, accusing the company of failing to build an online medical registry on time. CGI says that it is in talks to resolve that issue.

Intelligence information pertaining to an invasion or the consideration thereof, is not for public dissemination. Otherwise you are handing over all of your information to the enemy. Purposely hiding key details or putting forth untrue information regarding 1/6 of the American economy of which all taxpayers are going to have to foot the bill, is at best dishonest and at worst, criminal. The President of the United States perpetrated a fraud on the American public knowing full well that if he were forthcoming, it would never pass the smell test. Kathleen Sebelius, apart from her participation in the fraud, has cost the American taxpayer $600M with her incompetence. You need to compare apples to oranges, Ernie.

Roberts doesn't care if the NSA spies on us, the US continues to use torture or if US drones have killed 200 children. He is now to the right of the Tea Party.

Hey, Clark, maybe your beef is with President Obama. After all, he's the one in charge now or haven't you heard. Maybe you're one of those people that thinks he's trying to get things changed in Washington and he's not to be blamed because he's above it all. Why doesn't he stop the NSA from spying, the CIA from torturing, and the military from drone strikes? Nice try. Obama's the one in charge so if you have a complaint, I suggest you forward it to the Democrat National Committee, Washington D.C.

Googled you, understand your point of view. But you are so far off base, I feel sorry for you. Roberts is a prime example what's wrong in DC

Kathy better be polishing her resume. "...Fewer than 27,000 Americans selected an insurance plan through the federal healthcare.gov site, which is handling enrollment for 36 states, according to figures released Wednesday by the Obama administration. The site is still far from fully operational, leaving tech experts racing to get it working by month's end, as the administration promised.... http://money.cnn.com/2013/11/13/news/economy/obamacare-insurance/index.html?hpt=hp_t1
