A different goal

AtascaderoJuly 31, 2013 

Our country is one of the wealthiest in the world — and we have way too many poor people. And the GOP is most at fault — though the Democrats are certainly not blameless.

Mitch McConnell said, in 2010, that his primary goal was to make Barack Obama a one-term president, and to this end he and other Republicans were trying to thwart Obama’s recovery plan, and to a degree have succeeded. However, their plan has apparently backfired on them, as the increasing number of voters who were suffering financially looked to the Democrats for help.

If McConnell had said that the primary goal of the GOP was to work with the president to get this great nation out of the recession as quickly as possible, the economic life in these 50 states would be very different today.
