Mitch McConnell’s Plans For The 114th Congress: Total Deadlock And Stalemate!

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky made it clear at the time of the inauguration of President Barack Obama in January 2009 that his party would refuse to cooperate with the President on any legislation or policy.

Now, facing a tough reelection battle against Alison Lundergan Grimes, McConnell is pledging that if his party wins the Senate majority, and the House stays Republican, that he will promote massive budget cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, as well as gutting of the Environmental Protection Agency, and attempting again to destroy ObamaCare. He would attach these changes to budget bills, and if Obama vetoed, then we would have another government shutdown, as disastrous as the last one was for the Republican Party and the nation!

This is ever more reason why Democrats, progressives and liberals, and independents MUST come out enmasse on Election Day to prevent a GOP Senate majority, as that will also mean no replacement on the Supreme Court if anyone leaves, which is likely, in 2015 or 2016.

Ironically, this kind of behavior would likely reverberate on the Republicans in 2016, when two thirds of the Senate seats up for election would be their party, but the attitude seems to be one of total warfare and destruction while they have control.

The Republican Party is becoming totally nihilistic and anarchistic, not worthy of the long history of the party of Lincoln, TR, and Ike!

    The working middle class has suffered the deescalation in their standard, and quality of life, for the last thirty yeas under the failed, “snake oil sold” experiment of the “Trickle Down Theory” in this country.

    As I have stated often, and is the topic of my next posting before I go on the radio tomorrow, the result of this abomination legislation has resulted in the 1% of the U. S. population owning 95% of the wealth in this country; and they have been able to influence legislation exempting them from paying taxes on that 95% of the nation’s wealth. That means our whole tax burden to operate our country, i.e. fund a police force, military, education of our children, trash pickup, snow removal, road repair & construction, etc, is all left to operate on taxing the 5% left of the nation’s wealth that is funded by 99% of the population.

    The very important elections coming up in the near future is paramount. We have to employ a national search for the great men being forged in the flames that lesser men, through their short sightedness and ignorance, have ignited the fires.

    The working middle class can no longer withstand the burden of the further conflagration being inflicted upon them. Those suffering the immolation need to stand up, get involved, and declare, “We’re not going to take it any more!”
