I am having a lot of trouble with Republican Congressmen whose lack of moxie is allowing for results no different than if the congress and senate were democrat controlled.
They are afraid to use the constitutional powers to stop or slow down Obama. The Republicans have ceded power in effect letting Democrats do what they want. We might as well have Harry Reid and Pelosi running things because there has been no significant difference.
That’s not what they were elected to do. Having “show” votes is meaningless if nothing happens. The Republicans that ran on stopping Obamacare, illegal immigration, lowering taxes have not been able to move the needle. They attacked Ted Cruz when he tried to do something.
There are apologist that say that the Republicans in the Senate don’t have 60 votes. Well, the Dems had less than 60 votes and figured out how to ram the most influential piece of legislation in decades down the throats of the American people.
The GOP should know that they are being put on notice. It might be time for a new party if there is no difference between the two in Washington. Ted Cruz might be right about the Washington Cartel.
There’s seems to be only one party of money and power in Washington. Right now they think being more progressive might be good for business. But when the economy tanks and the government runs out of money those same power brokers will lead the charge back to more conservative thinking.
They will be making money at the expense of all Americans especially the poor all along the way.
Today will Trump in the White house the only significant thing achieved is a conservative Supreme Court justice.
