CONGRESS: Republicans are betting against America

It is obvious to anybody with any degree of common sense or political savvy that Republicans in Congress are betting against America. They have control of the House, and no plan for jobs is on the table at all. Their plan is always obstruct and deny President Obama a second term. They’re so bold they even admit it.

Every job plan Obama has laid on the table has been defeated and strongly criticized. Their lies would be laughable if they weren’t so serious.

This is the worst Congress ever in the history of America, and it does not bother them. They figure Citizens United and their wealthy coffers will buy the presidency for Mitt Romney. And doing so, their plan for America is a sure bet against America.

How else can you perceive it? They’re against women’s issues, and they disdain children’s public education. They have a thumbs-down attitude toward collective bargaining and unions. They attempt to suppress voting.

We need aggressive action to correct this dirty mess of politics and destruction. If not, it could lead to civil discourse to an alarming degree. Please show up at the polls and vote the obstructionists out of office.
