Posted on 12/02/2010 5:30:08 AM PST by ChrisBoundsTX
Republican Senator Mitch McConnell told the Senate body that all 42 Senate Republicans have signed a pledge to block all legislation until the tax cuts are extended.
That letter was delivered to Harry Reid who has been more concerned about passing the food safety bill (likely to fail in the House due to a constitutional error), the DREAM Act, and football.
Although the Democrats have a majority in the Senate, even if they all vote in favor of Reids agenda they still will need at least two Republican votes for passage. We will see who blinks first, but this is a good Republican move to force the issue before time runs out!
You claim to be the author of this video.
You do really good work at producing videos.
Finally they had the guts to do the right thing.
You can sell this easy, Democrats are more worried about wealth distribution than Jobs for the last two years.
grandstanding on this issue isn’t the “right thing”
It plays into the DNC-crafted image of the gOP as obstructionists, and suggests that when they get what they want, they’ll go back to dealing with the devil
Trust McConnell I do not
Just shut up, lay low, and git er done already. And no photo ops with Barry until he does it.
G O O D..its about time some of these pansies discovered their backbones...and brains.
I don’t look at it as grandstanding. If this is the one way to force them to address the main two issues and leave off all the other junk like the DREAM Act and DADT then I’m all for it. This bunch in charge of the Senate is determined to take over every aspect of our lives and to force amnesty.
Here is a direct link to the REAL producer and host of the video:
You’re full of it.
It says right at the top of the thread that Chris Bounds at Libertyjuice authored the whole thing.
“Food Safety Bill Passes Senate, But Constitutional Mistake Makes It Dead In The House”
Letter? What letter?
House sends it back printed on BLUE paper.....its dead Jim....pining for the fijords.
Did Mitch say ‘refudiate’ at 25 seconds into the vid? Kool.
