Who's the party of no Now?

Dems would like you to believe that Republicans trying to offer solutions and fixes are just the party of No.... Interesting, these amendments sound good to me.....

"Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn said he wants a vote on his amendment to prohibit coverage of Viagra for sex offenders. New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg wants savings from Medicare cuts plowed back into the health care program for seniors, instead of being used to expand coverage to the uninsured. Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi wants to gut penalties on employers whose workers wind up getting taxpayer subsidized coverage. "What we're doing is offering amendments to take out the sweetheart deals, to take out the overcharging of students on the student loans, to take out the taxes on people who make less than $250,000, which the president promised he wouldn't do," said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., of the overhaul. "And then we'll get into the points of order and there may be some constitutional issues raised during that period of time.""

But what is the Democrat response: "Democrats are vowing to bat down the Republican amendments one-by-one."

Looks like the republicans are the party of No to back room deals, kickbacks, buy offs, and all those things Obama campaigned that he too was a No about.... while the Democrat majority party is now the party of No compromise, No real solutions, No protection for Americans, No hope and change.....

This is why the bigger the government the smaller your personal freedom. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you like Government problems, just wait until you see their solutions.
