An open letter to the Republican leadership
Dear Senator McConnell, et al.,
I must commend you, sirs. Your duplicity is monumental:
We need to show the American people that we care more about them and their ability to pay their bills than we do about the special interests’ legislative Christmas-list.
Preventing a repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and an extension of jobless benefits, and the ratification of a nuclear arms treaty under the guise of “fiscal responsibility,” when what you’re really doing is holding the legislative process hostage until your fiscally irresponsible demands to extend the unpaid for Bush era tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans is pure genius.
Bravo. Yours is a performance for the ages.
