Saying "NO!" Doesn't Create A Job

On ABC-TV today, Sen. Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey) named the greatest obstacle to putting people back to work----- the Republican Party.

Raw Story:

"All our Republican colleagues have said is no," he went on to say. "They have used the filibuster, a procedure in the Senate to stop progress, 101 times, unprecedented in the history of the United States Senate!"

Menendez pointed out that when George W. Bush came to office he began with a $236 billion surplus, whereas Obama was handed a $1.3 trillion deficit. He credited Obama with making progress despite the economy, attacking Republicans for standing in the way.

"No doesn't create a job, no doesn't create health care insurance for anyone," Menendez huffed. "Or stop the abuses of the insurance companies. No doesn't help a senior citizen with their prescription drug coverage. Its time to begin to say yes to move the country forward."

Thank you, Sen. Robert Menendez, for stating the truth.
