“When I look at the Republicans, I am tempted to dismiss them as the Treason Party. Seriously, were a band of traitors to concoct a series of positions deliberately designed to weaken America, they would be hard pressed to beat the current GOP dogma — hobble education, starve the government by slashing taxes to the rich, kneecap attempts to jumpstart the economy by fixating on debt, invite corporations to dominate political discourse, balkanize the population by demonizing minorities and immigrants and let favored religions dictate social policy.”
“The Republican’s now have gone from just rooting against the economy to outright sabotage of the economy.”
“[W]hat’s really bothersome to me…is that it almost seems like my Republican colleagues in Congress and Mitt Romney are rooting for economic failure.”
“It is absolutely unconscionable and irresponsible that Republicans are essentially crossing their arms, sitting back, and hoping for the economy to remain stagnant.”
“Unfortunately our Republican colleagues in the House and Senate are driven by putting one man out of work — President Obama.
You can see in the way that the Republicans are acting on the floor of the Senate and the House, that is their goal — their only goal.
They want to play political games at the expense of getting this economy back on its feet. They believe a weak economy is their best chance of winning the next election.”
“Do Republicans really oppose a tax cut for businesses that created jobs? This is sort of beyond the pale. If they oppose even something so suited to their tastes ideologically, it shows that they’re just opposing anything that helps create jobs. It almost makes you wonder if they aren’t trying to slow down the economic recovery for political gain.”
