really. Getting a GOP Congress would nicely be Obama's most suitable desire for a powerful presidency. The GOP Congress of 1995 made Clinton look tremendous by utilising balancing the budget and reforming welfare. Clinton and the Democrats are nevertheless claiming credit for that stuff. Obama has to get rid of Pelosi and Reid. Pelosi is the most detrimental and least useful Speaker on the grounds that previous Joe Cannon contained in the early component of the 1900s. He incredibly a lot destroyed the completed domicile of Representatives jointly with his partisan BS and there develop into an finished insurrection from both component of the aisle. the guidelines that they handed to allow stability contained in the domicile between both events stood for one hundred YEARS till Pelosi overturned them with guidelines variations on the first DAY of this consultation of Congress. the recent guidelines - returning to the dictatorial form of Speaker Cannon - close the minority thoroughly out of any legislative function. maximum folk can carry law to the floor with decrease than 24 hours observe, enable NO amendments, or perhaps bypass taxes with out committee deliberations. NO enter from absolutely everyone. The law might want to be written in secret. Votes are compelled THEN and THERE. The Democratic Majority is even ramming THEIR will down the throat of the President. Obama lost administration of the talk on the so-called "stimulus" at the same time as he allowed Pelosi and her "gang" of left-wing thugs to jot down the law. He confirmed a finished lack of administration. Obama is now PAYING the price as PUBLIC help PLUMMETS. This bill STINKS. Congress will bypass it. Pelosi and the lefties get their way. Obama is compelled to signal it. it received't artwork and Obama is primary with that. His presidency is at stake. he will lose. huge. So will each person. we are TOAST.

4 Years? There was a LIB majority in congress from 2007 to 2011. "Cons" as you call them have been the majority less than 2 years.
And is it working against the people when the president comes to you with a jobs bill and says, "Here's my jobs bill, now pass it!" and when he won't accept any changes the DEMS call you "obstructionist"?
I thought congress was supposed to be about compromise. The Democrats rammed Obamacare down our throats without any Republican support. Is that bipartisanship? Is that compromise?

The past four years??
In case you've forgotten, the Democrats held majorities in both the house and senate for the first two years of Obama's presidency. The Republicans gained their house majority in the 2010 election.

For one thing, they kept an additional $800 billion in debt from being racked up last year. As one of the few who will actually have to pay for that debt, I appreciate that. I'm sure you don't care since your effective tax rate will probably never exceed 4%.

It's your opinion that they work against "the people." Perhaps you don't understand arguments from the other side.
The conservative or Republican majority has served to keep Obama from totally screwing us over. As it is, Obama only partially screws us.
