Guilty as charged

According to Democrats, Republican congressmen have deliberately blocked all of President Obama's proposals. I agree. Those congressmen are indeed guilty.

They are guilty of blocking Obama's liberal nominees for political office. They tried to block the stimulus bills. They tried to stop the growth of entitlement programs.

They tried to block ObamaCare. They opposed raising the national debt ceiling. They want a balanced budget amendment.

For the first two years of Obama's term, Democrats controlled Congress and the Republicans didn't have the votes to stop him. Obama hasn't signed any major spending bills since Republicans gained power.

Thank you, Republican congressmen, for your brave stand. The voters should punish your dastardly deeds by re-electing you.
