U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Senate Republican Conference Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Senate Republican Policy Committee Chairman John Thune (R-SD), National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (R-TX), and Senate Republican Conference Vice Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY) released the following joint statement in support of “A Pledge to America.”
“Americans are speaking out and we are listening. The proposals put forward today by House Republicans reflect what Americans are saying. They want to us to focus on jobs first, fight wasteful Washington spending, repeal and replace the health spending bill and shrink an exploding deficit. Americans want a smaller, less costly and more accountable government.
“We strongly support this effort, and together, House and Senate Republicans will continue to fight for these principles. While the White House will retain the veto pen, House and Senate Republicans will focus on making America more competitive, reducing the size and cost of government, keeping our nation strong and secure, and reining in the massive health care costs and mandates imposed by the Democrats’ health spending bill.”
Comment: I believe Boehner is sincere...to a point, but we would do well to get rid of every single US Senator because they caused the mess we have today. They allowed for the US Constitution to be thrashed, the government to grow to epic proportions, giving the banks billions upon billions of dollars that is being loaned back to us at interest, a soviet style police state, and for our young to be fighting in four wars at once over the course of the longest span in US history (just to name a few of the debacles). The only thing they should hear is the door slamming shut with our collective foot square against their asses as they are sent home!
