The Majority of No?


© Adam Zyglis

As the minority party, the Republicans were able to get away with being the Party of No, but now that they have a majority in the House, and an improved ability to filibuster the Senate, how long can they keep up being the party that is just opposed to everything the Democrats try to do (even if what the Dems are doing was originally a Republican idea)? And more importantly, how long will the voters let them get away with such blatant obstructionism?

    Probably 2 years, and then people won’t remember why they voted in the Republicans.

    Dunno the answers to your questions, Knee. Sorta rhetorical at this point. Might want to give them more than 2 days in session, huh?

    The consequence of this election left-wingers should fear is that Repubs took a LOT of state seats and it’s time for congressional re-districting. ooops.

    Hate on democracy, but the GOP didn’t steal victory (this time) 😉
