Your View: Stand up for America

By Maurice Filson

JOPLIN, Mo. — Now that the Affordable Health Care Act is getting ready to go into effect, even President Obama wants to change something.

Does he not understand? It’s the law. His law.

Simply put, Obama has trampled on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights since the day he took office.

U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt, U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill and U.S. Rep. Billy Long; when are you going to stop being Republicans and Democrats and start being Americans?

Give us some public proof you are standing up for this great nation, and put Obama in his place.

We’re sure paying all of you enough to do it.

If you don’t stop him, you won’t be able to count the executive privileges because he will continue to bypass you again and again.

Wake up.
