Oct 9, 2013 in WASHINGTON, D.C.
Republican senators put THIRTEEN unanimous consent requests to the Senate, each of which would reopen some part of the federal government, including the National Institute of Health, the National Park Services and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Democrats BLOCKED every single one of them! They’re holding out for ALL OR NOTHING. They want Americans to HURT as much as possible and BLAME REPUBLICANS for it. They’re hoping that a combination of STUPIDITY and BIASED MEDIA will push Americans to pressure Republicans to cave.
My word to Republicans is …
DON’T EVEN BLINK!
We’re sick to death of being dictated to by this nasty, bullying Obama Democrat Progressive Minority!!
