Regarding, Willis' letter, please consider the following:

The prior Congress submitted 30 bills to the Senate that would stimulate job creation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid never brought them up for consideration.

The Senate has not passed a budget in four years. Paul Ryan of the Republican House passed a comprehensive budget and debt reduction plan. It never saw the light of day in the Senate.

The current Republican Congress has submitted two bills to the Senate that would alter the upcoming budget cuts set to become effective Friday. No action from the Senate.

President Obama has submitted no plan of his own to alter the upcoming budget cuts and refuses to negotiate in good faith.

So who is saying no?

We are rapidly becoming Greece. One should be glad that the Republicans say "no."
