The Republican wing of our House of Representatives is now so crippled by animosity for the President and a desire to slow the economy for electoral gain that they cannot even bring themselves to cooperate for the sake of a payroll tax cut for 160 million hard-working Americans – a measure which they claim to support. So dysfunctional has this Republican Tea Party Congress become that any cooperation on creating or saving jobs no longer seems possible.
A governing majority that is incapable of legislative agreement on anything is not governing and it is no long a majority – it is a broken wing: incapable of flight, incapable giving any lift to our country’s job’s recovery.
Senate Democrats, Senate Republicans and the White House worked across party lines to reach an agreement that will keep more money in the pocket of working families and keep our jobs recovery moving forward. By blocking this bipartisan agreement, House Republicans are weakening our economy. Democratic Governors believe they should get back to work and pass the compromise agreement.
