You’d think that President Obama and the Democrats would have learned a lesson after yesterday’s electoral bloodbath. But no, expect more of the same from these goons.
The Hill reported that Senate Democrats are warning Republicans not to block legislation.
Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), Majority Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Democratic Conference Vice Chairman Charles Schumer (N.Y.) pledged in a conference call with reporters Wednesday to work with the Republicans but also emphasized the GOP’s responsibility to not block legislation.
Reid, especially, renewed a threat he made before, that Republicans must stop obstructing and start cooperating. The majority leader, who survived a close reelection battle, said he spoke early Wednesday afternoon with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
“Republicans must take their responsibility to solve the problems of ordinary Americans,” Reid said. “Simply saying ‘no,’ as we’ve had this past Congress … won’t bring jobs back. It won’t strengthen the economy, and it won’t help families who are struggling to make ends meet. ‘No’ is not the answer. It has to be ‘yes.’ Not our ‘yes,’ but a combined ‘yes,’ something we work out — a consensus ‘yes.’”
Hey Harry – we neither need nor want you solving our problems for us. All you do is create new problems. We just want you to stop.
And today, President Obama acknowledged that people aren’t happy about the economy but he’s not going to go back and “re-litigate” the crap he and his buddies rammed down our throats.
“I think we would be misreading the results of this election if we thought Americans want us to re-litigate some of the issues that we spent the past two years litigating.”
He specifically said he will not allow Obamacare to be repealed.
He said one out of two voters don’t want it repealed, but polls reveal that almost 60% of us want the law overturned. But again, he doesn’t care what we think.
