The is probably the most common question I read from Democrats who claim they want to compromise with Republicans.
The answer is pretty simple: Because Republicans refuse to kill any chance of an economic recovery and increase unemployment just so the Democrats can continue their unfathomable social program expansions and trillions of dollars in free handouts to their special interest groups.
The Republicans believe it is because of these Democrats’ issues that got us into this predicament to begin with! It’s absolutely, 100%, completely ABSURD to continue on such a destructive path!
It’s like a crack addict losing his job, car, house, and all his money then becoming confused and belligerent because his brother won’t give him $20 to buy another crack rock.
