Pelosi To House GOP: ‘Come Back To Work And Stop Stonewalling’

Pelosi To House GOP: ‘Come Back To Work And Stop Stonewalling’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday released a statement in which she called on Republican leadership in the House to "come back to work and stop stonewalling every effort" to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.

The statement:

"The House Democratic leadership is calling on the Republican leadership to come back to work and stop stonewalling every effort to get the job done, including making sure that taxes are not raised on tens of millions of middle class families.

"House Democrats have been standing ready and willing to return to Washington to vote on critical issues including the middle class tax cuts, Sandy disaster relief, the Violence Against Women Act, the Farm Bill – all while we continue to work on a bipartisan solution to avoid the fiscal cliff. There are plenty of reasons for this Do-Nothing Congress to get back to work.

"The House Republican leadership has run out of excuses and out of time. Their inaction continues to threaten middle class Americans with higher taxes.

"With five days left before the fiscal cliff, Speaker Boehner should immediately call the House back into session to allow a vote on the Senate-passed middle class tax cut bill that the President has said he would sign immediately."

1. Republicans suck.

I don't know what else to say. What a stunning lack of leadership we are seeing in the House.

2. Are the GOP leaders even in the House?

You know what I mean.. thinking of the Koch brothers, the NRA, and so on.

4. The GOP are just their employees, sure enough. Not ours by any means.

6. The Republicans are AWOL

...as they always are when America needs a show of courage - Republicans routinely whimp out, dodge the draft, or whatever, and go AWOL. They are a shameful lot of hacks.

3. THat pretty much sums it up

they are letting their media machine spread lies and propaganda while they avoid their duty to the country. I am glad that Pelosi is no taking the bait to either

1. "Pass the largest tax increase in history"
2. "Cut benefits to our oldest and neediest Americans", or
3. "Fail to take measures to reduce the crippling deficit"

whatever passes will be one of these three options, and it Pelosi moves first the right wing media juggernaut will jump on it. Let Boner choose among these three losing options.
