1. Sure! They cut wages, unemployment, healthcare, food and housing, which means less poor people.

3. I cannot remember either, but

I also cannot remember what Obama has even proposed to help the working class in the last two years.

And Obama is the one who recently said

Ive got to have folks in the United States Senate who are willing to stand up for working people just like I am,

http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2013/06/12/president-obama-campaigns-for-markey/NaccIT5nI3QgmTFQJuUDDL/story.html

Stand up for working people? Really? When has he done that, again, because I cannot remember.

I can still remember some of the betrayals though.

4. A President needs a cooperative Congress to work with first

because they cannot pass legislation on their own without the will of both the Senate and House, which is why unemployment has been lowering so slowly. Obama proposed a Jobs Bill in 2011, yet the GOP blocked it in the House. And gun control hasn't gone anywhere, as it has been filibustered in the Senate thus far. We have a checks-and-balances system, so if people want the gridlock to end, they need to show up in the midterm elections in 2014 and get rid of the bums.

5. he doesn't need a cooperative Congress in order to make proposals

Obama does not need a cooperative Congress in order to avoid betrayals.

For example, the biggest part of Obama's famous "jobs bill" was the accursed payroll tax cut.

Accursed, because most of the benefits goto the rich.

But in fact, Obama proposed even bigger tax cuts for the rich. He proposed a payroll tax cut of 3% instead of the 2%. Give even more money to the rich. And once Congress agreed to extend the accursed payroll tax cut for another year that was about all we heard about the jobs bill.

9. Nobody in the House cares. He's going to try and blame it on Harry Reid next year.

So, Harry needs to learn to play some 3-D chess.
What Harry needs to do this fall is to blow out the stupid filibuster rulez, pass some legislation in the Senate, and then put the ball in Boehnor's court.

Harry needs to pass about 15 or so bills in a hurry flurry - bam bam bam - that will help the middle class and the poor, and then let those bills travel over to the House to watch the Tea Party coalition go crazy go nuts.
Boehnor is not able to control the nuts in the Tea Party cocktail mix now as it is, and so you know that they will start pulling out each other's hair once Harry gets those bills passed out of the Senate.
