In Case You Were Wondering
If Democrats Are Serious
At All About That
Fiscal Cliff Plan Obama
Offered Last Week.........
You now have your answer:
On the Senate floor on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell offered to give Democrats a chance to go on the record and demonstrate just how serious they are about averting the fiscal cliff by proposing a vote on the package that President Obama proposed last week. Take it away, McConnell:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JHQFe1qrxSo
This forced Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid to claim that an attempt to get Democrats to publicly vote on Obama's own plan was a 'stunt'.
How DARE these Republicans try to force Democrats to vote on the record over Obama's own fiscal cliff plan! The nerve of some people?!
It must be remembered in his years as President Obama has proffered one terrible plan after another that Democrats have to run away from. Three budgets have been proposed by Obama since 2009. Not one single Republican voted for any of them. BUT THAT'S OK - not a single Democrat in the House OR the Senate cast a vote for them either.
So Obama was totally unserious with this fiscal cliff plan. And Democrats in Congress KNOW this. And they can't hide it.
