The party of tolerance is the party of hypocrisy,
In other words: Republicans vote against most democratic bills due to the fact harry reid will not allow republican bills to be voted on at all. Democrats don't want Republicans to be able to point to any successful legislation come election time.
If reid would let all legislation be voted on, as the system was designed, republicans would have had their say whether the bills passed or not, and you would not see this magnitude of obstruction.
"The president is fond of referring to the House as the ‘do-nothing Congress.’ But we have 352 reasons why it’s a ‘do-Nothing Senate.’
"352 bills are sitting on Harry Reid’s desk, awaiting action.
"98 percent of them passed with bipartisan support -- Republicans and Democrats working together to pass legislation.
"50 percent of the bills passed unanimously, with no opposition.
"70 percent of the bills passed with two-thirds support in the House.
"And over 55 bills were introduced by Democrats.
"352 bills. Why won’t Harry Reid act? These are good bills; bills that put the American people back to work, put more money in hardworking Americans pockets, help with education, and skills training. We call upon Harry Reid to get to work before he adjourns in August to pass some of these bills. The American people deserve better."
Republicans vote against what they themselves believe is good for the country because they are willing to hurt the country to make government dysfunctional.
