Repubs say they'll block ALL Dem/Obama bills this session


By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS, Associated Press Julie Hirschfeld Davis, Associated Press 1 hr 32 mins ago

WASHINGTON Senate Republicans threatened Wednesday to block virtually all legislation until expiring tax cuts are extended and a bill is passed to fund the federal government, vastly complicating Democratic attempts to leave their own stamp on the final days of the post-election Congress.

"While there are other items that might ultimately be worthy of the Senate's attention, we cannot agree to prioritize any matters above the critical issues of funding the government and preventing a job-killing tax hike," all 42 GOP senators wrote in a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The 42 signatures are more than enough to block action on almost any item he wishes to advance.

The threat does not apply to a new arms control treaty with Russia that is pending, since it would be debated under rules that differ from those that apply to routine legislation. President Barack Obama has made ratification of the pact a top priority.

O sold out by allowing the rich tax cuts to continue. Although the Repubs had him over a barrel, he still gave in and I am not sure if some of his Dem Congress folk will forgive him.

The House and the Senate's inability to get anything passed is one reason he had to compromise. They could not even pass it when they had chances but they want to gripe about what Obama did.

Obama and Pelosi wanted to do this tax thing in September and the House and Senate didn't have the guts to do it.
They did not and do not have the Presidents back. They have not done their job.




When other people make mistakes, we seek justice.
When we make mistakes, we seek compassion.
The lesson is to give to others what you seek.

Good checks and balances. Cap and trade is dead. I wish they could stop the bugger bernake printing money. He should face treason trials for flooding the world with dollar debt claims . The democrats just wanted more debts and taxes gtfoh.
