For two years Democrats in House of Representatives were able to dictate every word placed in the legislation they wanted to pass. They totally froze out any input from Republicans.
They had more than enough votes to pass anything they wanted without the help of a single Republican. Yet whenever they were in danger of failing to pass a favored piece of legislation, they would cry that it was because the Republicans were the “Party of No”.
Now we have a situation where President Obama actually compromised with Republicans and made a deal to extend tax cuts two years for everyone (a Republican idea) and also extend unemployment benefits (a Democrat idea) for another year. Just listen to the Democrats in the House of Representatives now. It seems that any compromise at all is totally against their nature.
I think it’s plain to everyone who the real “Party of No” is.
