Today, Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) confirmed pretty much what we’ve known all along. The Republican Party’s obstructionism and its latest vote against the American Jobs Act is not because of some philosophical difference about how to govern, but a political tactic to “make President Obama look bad” in order to help defeat him in the 2012 election, and if they have to throw the American economy in the shitter to do so, so be it.
It really isn’t a shock, but the fact that a member of Congress would admit that something like this is happening behind closed doors is stunning, as MSNBC host Chris Jansing expressed. So the next time you hear that both parties care for their country but just have a difference of opinion in how to run it, know that it’s complete bullshit. The Republican Party would rather destroy the US (and possibly global) economy solely for the purpose of winning the White House in 2012 and then attempt to repeal health care reform.
