This is how Republicans blocked a vote to confirm the new EPA chief. Not a single one showed up.
Remember this as you get ready to vote in the 2014 midterm elections: it’s not just that Republicans are wrong on virtually every policy position. It’s not just that Republicans are more interested in their personal hatred of President Obama than dealing with the nation’s problems. It’s not even just that Republicans wish to do harm to the economy (see all the debt ceiling messes and the sequester) than do anything that might be perceived as helping the President.
At the end of the day, it all boils down to one simple fact: the Republicans in Congress are not even working. They’re not even bothering to act like they’re doing their jobs.
What would happen to you or me if we tried this? That’s right, we’d get fired. So come 2014, here’s our chance to fire the Republicans.
