It looked promising, there, for a moment, but mere hours after Democrats and Republicans agreed to bargain on tax cuts, and just minutes after Defense Secretary Robert Gates urged Congress to repeal DADT this year, it was discovered that the Republicans weren’t having it. Any of it.
Remember how angry they were two years ago when the Democrats swept into power and they turned into the Party of No? Remember how they voted against everything Democratic without offering their own solutions?
Well, they’re at it again.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid received a letter written by Senate Minority Leader and Senate Minority Fucktard Mitch McConnell, and signed by all 42 Republicans, stating that the GOP will block any and all debate on every single bit of legislation until the Bush tax cuts–once again, the tax cuts for the richest Americans, most of them Republicans–are extended. See, they won’t do anything until the rich get richer.
Sounds like they screwed the Tea Party, after months of putting their GOP lips firmly against teabagger sphincter.
The letter reads:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s response:
So, when you think that they are there to work for you, understand that they are not. They are there to insure that the rich stay rich, and everyone else stays just where there are today.
That’s your GOP, people. Aren’t you thrilled you voted them in?
