U.S. Congress: Partisan, polarized and unpopular

When Dems under Bush fought back and stopped his retirement change initiatives, I don't recall them denying that it was THEM who was doing it.

With Repubs under Obama, Repubs fight back and blame Obama for their refusal to compromise.
Obamacare was passed without a single Congressional Republican vote. Senate Democrats refused to take 50 House passed reform bills up for consideration. But it is the Republicans who are unwilling to compromise.

Obama has issued petulant veto threats for everything from bills offering to delay Obamacare to continuing resolutions to fund the goverment. But the inaction is all due to Republicans.

Harry Reid declared the Federal Government doesn't need a budget for years. He decided to discard the filibuster for nomination confirmations. But, it is Republicans who cannot compromise.

Obama announces his intention to bypass Congress, Democrats give him a standing ovation for shredding the Constitution. But Republicans need to make concessions.

Republican refusal to debate? That must be a joke because it has no basis in reality. Explain how the Republicans who refuse to debate passed budgets 3 years in a row Harry Reid prevented the Senate from considering them making Obama the first President in more than 70 years to lead the Federal Government without a budget.

You are the one reciting talking points.
