You are right, they do. And I sincerely hope that the Republican Party maintains their destructive, obstructionist policies until November of 2014.<quoted text>
.....Elections have consequences. You and your fellow class warriors voted for 4 more years of the same disastrous economic decline and the same bunch of leftists who will have us slouching further down the Euro-socialist road to Greece-like ruin. The smart money (and outside of government there's only smart money) has gone to ground - and is going to stay there. So quit whining - you're getting exactly what you voted for.
There were more filibusters in two years (2009-2010) than in 30 years (1950 - 1979) when Medicare, Medicaid, Civil Rights, Voting Rights, Affirmative Action and other significant legistlation was passed.
Please keep doing the same.
