      The GOP has been in obstructionist mode since the day the president put his hand on the bible, and that goes for screaming about the deficit too.

      •  It's one thing to be in an obstructionist mood. (0+ / 0-)

        It's another to have the votes.

        •  Can't vote on a bill (0+ / 0-)

          when the minority continuously filibusters.
          You know, like the Senate Democrats replacement for the sequester that the Republicans filibustered Thursday.
          We've "had the votes" for several bill over the last 4 years, but the Republicans prevent voting on the bill by filibusters.
          Tyranny of the minority.
