To do this, they have blocked virtually every legislative proposal that Obama has made, and then they accuse him of failing to lead. Their most recent manoeuvre is absolutely reprehensible. They have voted against a bill that would have created jobs for our returning veterans, enabling them to become firefighters and policemen. They prevented the bill from even coming to a vote. The 40 Republicans who voted against it included four who wrote it. According to the Washington Examiner the cost of the bill would be covered by collecting unpaid taxes over five years.
It is clear that the only reason the Republicans blocked this bill was to prevent Obama from getting credit for it so close to the November election. I can only hope that if Obama is re-elected that the American public will elect Democratic senators so that the Democrats can regain control of the Senate.
