The House Republicans are the most reactionary group seen in Congress in modern times, as evidence now shows that they are opposing not only general public opinion, but also that of voters of their own party, along with Independents and Democrats!
Issues where this is true include the following where some Republicans supported the proposed legislation in the Senate:
ENDA–the bill to stop discrimination in employment against gays and transgendered people, passed 64-32 in the Senate.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform, which passed the Senate 68-32.
At the same time, Republicans in both houses of Congress are fighting against the following, which are also supported by Republicans in polls, along with Democrats and Independents.
The Minimum Wage increase legislation to $9 an hour.
Background Checks on Gun Purchases
Who would think that a political party could ignore the views of its own voters and expect to stay in office? It makes one wonder how the GOP can believe it will keep power in the House and gain control of the Senate, as they seem to believe they can accomplish, when they have such a high level of arrogance as they are demonstrating!
