FRSFreeState: Senate Democrats: Leader Harry Reid: "Blocking Veterans' Jobs Bill Marks New Low For Republicans": What Senate Democrats Should Be Doing



"Its the economy stupid" which is what Senate Democrats should be thinking about in the next couple of months. The economy isn't great right now, with low Economic and Job Growth, with 12M Americans unemployed and they have ideas on how to improve the situation and legislation to address it. Led by Leader Harry Reid and what do Senate Republicans have to offer, an idea to get back to power and take control of the Senate, which is make Senate Democrats look incompetent, as if. They can't pass anything, they don't how to govern, even though Senate Republicans led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have blocked almost everything that Senate Democrats have brought to the floor. Even simple things like the Senate Calender, the Senate GOP strategy is that as long as the economy is bad and we can prevent Senate Democrats from doing anything to address it, voters will take it out on Senate Democrats and the President. Mitt Romney will get elected President, House Republicans will retain the majority and Senate Republicans led by Mitch McConnell. Will take control of the Senate, giving the GOP the White House and a Republican Congress, this has been Minority Leader McConnell's strategy since Barack Obama has become President.

But based on some of the Senate Candidates that the GOP has put up in Maine, Indiana, and now with Todd Aiken in Missouri. This strategy is starting to fall apart and Mitt Romney's low numbers in the polls aren't helping them and what Senate Democrats should be doing is keep pushing. On the economy, we know things are bad, we have ideas to fix the problem but all we are getting from the Senate GOP is obstruction, because they want to shut down the Senate and make. It look like we don't know how to govern, Democrats could look like the party of ideas in this debate, while Republicans look like the party of nothing or the party of failed ideas from the Bush Administration. So if I'm Leader Reid I'm bringing jobs bills to the floor everyday, especially as it relates to veterans and daring the Minority Leader to block them. At least until they can get some cooperation with some Senate Republicans on amendments to move legislation forward.
