Republicans are going to need to pick up 14 Democrat votes for the amendment to pass. The vote on this is expected sometime after four o’clock today. And remember, almost a year ago (ten months ago in May) Obama approved a giant oil storage tank in the Gulf for Brazil. We are funding oil creation and expansion and exploration for Brazil and a couple of other Central American and South American countries. But not here. No, because the United States has to pay the price! We have to pay the price for our prosperity. We have to pay the price for how mean-spirited and extreme we’ve been to the peoples of the world. We have stolen their resources; it’s time we paid the price.
(sigh) He’s not “out of touch,” Senator McConnell. He’s entirely in touch. He has specific motives for this. And as you just detailed, Senator, they are not helpful. In fact, they are detrimental to this country. If I wanted to, I could go out there and I could get the audio of President Obama saying, “I won’t rest until every American has a job.” He says it over and over again. I’m sure you’ve heard it. The fact of the matter is, it’s not that the president “won’t rest until every American has a job.” The president won’t rest until he’s killed every job related to the Keystone pipeline! And don’t get me started on killing the health insurance industry. That’s in a death spiral, too, thanks to him.
The president won’t rest until every American has a job?
