Republicans block Obama's agenda at their peril

President Barack Obama's inaugural speech was inspiring and brilliantly focuses on the correct path the nation must take in the future ("Obama 2.0," Jan. 22). The president spelled out a progressive agenda that I and millions of American citizens voted for and on which we expect this president to deliver. Ending two disastrous wars, tighter gun controls, protection of the nation's safety net of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, equality for women, minorities and gays, promotion of clean energy and addressing global warming are all critical parts of the progressive agenda that has made this nation great.

If Republicans choose to block these measures, those of us who helped this president get re-elected will help sweep those obstructionists out of office in two years.
