Watch Conservative Senators Suck Ass On Purpose (pardon my french)



Trent Lott (R-MS): “The strategy of being obstructionist can work or fail… so far it’s working for us.”

How is being an obstructionist working for the American people? Who the hell cares?
Party before country.
Money before ethics.

The legislation being blocked by right-wing senators has broad public support:

  • – Conservatives blocked debate on raising the minimum wage (54-43, Roll Call Vote #23)
  • – Conservatives blocked debate ethics reforms (Rejected 51-46, Roll Call Vote #16)
  • – Conservatives blocked debate on funding for renewable energy (Rejected 57-36, Roll Call Vote #223)
  • – Conservatives blocked a vote on funding for the intelligence community (Rejected 41-40, Roll Call Vote #130)
  • – Conservatives delayed legislation fulfilling the 9/11 Commission recommendations (Passed 97-0, Roll Call Vote #53)
