GOP Totally Committed to Obstructionism
After President Obama met with Republican leaders yesterday, GOP bigwigs like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell made lots of noises that sounded like they were ready to start working together with Obama and the Democrats.
Would you be surprised to learn that they were flat-out lying? Senate GOP letter calls for blocking most bills.
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans intend to block action on virtually all Democratic-backed legislation unrelated to tax cuts and government spending in the current postelection session of Congress, officials said Tuesday, adding that the leadership has quietly collected signatures on a letter pledging to carry out the strategy.
If carried out, it would doom Democratic-backed attempts to end the Pentagon’s practice of discharging openly gay members of the military service and give legal status to young illegal immigrants who join the military or attend college.
