That's not true.
This is how congress used to work.
370 to 20 (192D, 177R, 1 I voted yes)
10 republicans and 10 democrats voted no.
Mixture of both parties for.
313-70 (47 abs)
Mixture of both parties for, against, and abstaining.
269-62 (83 not voting- members of both parties)
173D, 96R voting for. Some D and R both voting against.
This is how it has worked since Cantor and the republican party decided to vote no to everything.
214-218- not a single yes vote by republicans.
All R and a small number of D voting against.
235 to 193- not a single yes vote by republicans.
All R and a small number of D (17) voting against.
As I quote above- the republicans we already quoted as intending to vote no to everything. To be against everything the president was for.
The republicans are not negotiating.
In the budget fight, the republicans asked for 85% spending cuts, 15% tax increases. The democrats offered 87% spending cuts, 17% tax increases. The republicans then counter proposed 100% spending cuts and 0% tax increases, rejecting their OWN budget proposals for christ's sake.
It's insane. It is not the way the country was run from 1978 to 2008.
If you sincerely believe this- then it's going to be very difficult to change your mind since you will weight the facts supporting your belief heavily while discounting facts contrary to your beliefs.
So I'm done. You asked- and I gave you details. Direct quotes from the leader of the house and senate republicans stating they were going to vote no to everything.
Then you listed the congressional site and I responded with additional support showing bi partisan voting prior to 2008. It's your choice to process them or ignore them.
