The same dirty pool

October 22, 2012
The Daily News

EDITOR:

If Romney/Ryan are elected, are the Democrats, the day after the election, going to a "secret" conference room to pledge to veto or defeat any Republican bill introduced in congress, filibuster any bill put forth by Republicans, refuse to compromise on anything, sign a Grover Norquist type pledge (Republicans signed one swearing never to raise taxes) and do the same dirty pool the Republican Party did?

Will they do anything to make Romney/Ryan a one-term president? Will they stop/filibuster a jobs bill, a transportation bill, the bipartisan farm bill, kill the post office, or any bill just to make the president look bad? Add to a transportation bill a contraception amendment, and when the bill does not pass, blame the Republicans?

That is what Republican Senator Mike Johanns of Nebraska and Senator Blunt from Missouri proposed.

Throw away their principles (we were for it but now we are against it) regardless of what is proposed? The Democratic Party would not go after women's rights, voter suppression, or collective bargaining.

Will Democrats be so rigid in their thinking that they would send this country over the cliff financially? I'm sure the Democratic Party will not sink to the Republican Party's level.

Be careful what you wish for because the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Grover Norquist, Tea Party activists, and the rest of the Super PACs are not spending billions of dollars to defeat President Obama for the fun of it. They want something in return and you, the middle class taxpayer, will pay dearly.
