Screwed up priorities, continued.
Right now in Congress, the Democrats are trying to pass the START treaty with Russia and abandon Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. They are pushing the DREAM Act to allow illegal aliens access to college. Harry Reid is personally pushing online gambling initiatives.
Meanwhile the GOP is trying to keep the government from shutting down and keep the stock market from crashing on December 15th and, once those two are addressed, want to extend unemployment benefits by December 31st.
I guess the messaging still sucks. Maybe the Democrats need to remember that it is, in fact, the economy stupid. And uncertainty over a pending Obama tax hike, including an increase in capital gains taxes, as well as the certain increase in health care costs due to Obamacare will continue to kill job creation in this country.
Senate Democrats are well aware that they’re pretty much neutered in trying to push their liberal agenda. For the most part, they’re tone-deaf to what November’s election was all about. Which is fine with me, as 2012 is right around the corner, and their reckoning will be coming soon enough.
