The Repubs are proposing one policy that has shown not to work. After 8 years of Reagan's "Trinkle-Down" economics it was shown that what trinkled down wasn't wealth...but something else and it was yellow in color. :-) The other one is the same policy that caused the crash at the end of 2008. The Repubs accuse Obama and the Dems of increasing the deficit yet do not acknowledge or accept the fact that THEY started 2 wars without putting the cost of those wars in the budget. Did we forget Henry Paulson is the one that ORIGINATED the TARP idea??? Did we forget that Paulson wanted full and total control of the TARP funds with absolutely no oversight? Are the Repubs irrelevant? Absolutely. The Dems were the ones that stated that they wouldn't even discuss TARP without including overight. Are the Repubs irreleavant? Without a doubt. They don't even represent America as a whole except to give it lip service. Who do they represent? Those that supply them with their money...they don't even bother trying to hide it anymore. The Repubs have been bought and paid for by the big coporate interests like the Koch Brothers to move any and all services that have a potential for high profits out of govt's hands and into the private sector. Which is why the Repubs were not going to support ANY type of health care reform on a national level that would adversely affect health insurance industry's profits. Lastly, politicians and political parties, by their nature, are always looking for ways of upstaging and outmanuevering their opposition. We all know this and it's been unwritten and unspoken. But when push comes to shove in the past, the most important thing was to do what was best for the country and for it's citizens. Never in the history of the US has any elected official gone on record as did Mitch McConnell to state that HIS sole purpose was to make Obama a one term President. This is good for the country? Yes, the Repubs have become irrelevant.
