What they have a "mandate" to do is provide legitimate and honest questioning of Presidential policy and regulation passed by the Senate and when necessary provide viable alternatives incorporating Republican ideology (as opposed to conservative which they are not.)Thanks goodness the United States House of Representatives has a mandate in 2012 to oppose such an empty headed and totally clueless President!
There are 224 Republicans and only 178 clueless and mindless Democraps in the United States House of Representatives. And, there are going to be 234 Republicans and only clueless and mindless 195 Democraps in the House of Represenatives in January. That is, obviously, a mandate for the overwhelmingly Republican House to continue opposing the Illegitimate Obama Regime "by any means necessary." How else can you interpret the results?
The Senate owes us the same thing.
The fact is, Congress as a whole owes it to the American people to solve our problems and get us onto a sustainable foundation of growth. For the last 4 years the Republicans have not wanted to do so.
