According to the left the Country gave a mandate to Obama to raise taxes and do anything he wants. It has been proclaimed to be true by Obama admin officials Obama and the lefties on this board. Using that Logic then in 2004 when Bush got reelected he had a mandate to do what ever he chose to do, remind us how the left responded to THAT claim? For all you righties willing to throw in the towel remind yourself of how a split Government ACTUALLY works, One house drafts a bill and submits it to the other house, the second house sends the bill to committee, makes the changes they think are appropriate and then passes it, the new bill is sent to a house senate committee to see if the differences can be worked out, Now remind yourself How Reid for the last 2 years ran the Senate? He simply refused to send to committee any bill he disagreed with, he refused to do his Congressional, Constitutional duty. And now suddenly we the right are supposed to roll over and do what ever the left demands, doesn't wotk that way. The House must continue to vote its conscious and the Senate must do its Constitutional duty not stonewall the House.
