  • Mr. Steven's response to my "vent" does not address the issue that I presented.

  • To the editor:
    Mr. Steven's response to my "vent" does not address the issue that I presented.
    The Constitution of the United States of America is a "rulebook" for the country's governing bodies.
    The spirit of the Constitution is for the people who are elected representatives of the populace to govern in the best interests of the populace.
    "That politician was elected to vote OUR interests, not his." So if a number of elected representatives pass a law then a number of elected representatives should be assembled to vote the law down if the populace wishes.
    Holding the populace hostage for a law the was processed by the "rulebook" is unethical. They would not let the vote occur because they knew that they were going to lose the vote.
    So elect representative that express your opinion and accept the result(s).
    Majority rules, if you are not in the majority on this issue as well as others then you have to accept the result(s) no matter what your feelings are.
    I have accepted laws that I disagree with. I will vote for persons of like opinions but I would NOT use the American people's livelihood as a method of getting what I want. PS. I am not sold on the Affordable Care Act, but I am sold on the United States of America.
