Today I discovered a great page on the Democratic Party's website.
It's a concise summary of the Republican Party's approach of 'just saying no' to the various initiatives and proposals put forth by President Obama. (Once on the page, click on each person's face to hear what they have to say for themselves).
The page features House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky).
"Instead of petty politics and empty obstructionism, Republicans in Congress should either support the president’s budget or present their own plan to create jobs, fix our schools, reform our health care system, and make America energy independent,” says Democratic National Committee Communications Director Brad Woodhouse.
I've previously stated that I don't think anyone should blindly support everything the new administration suggests, but in the absence of alternative ideas, their plans should not simply be rejected for party purposes.
