Pence Lets Truth Slip On Uncompromising Stance: Were Trying To Score A Victory For The Republican People

The federal government appears to be hurtling towards a shutdown following the inability of congressional negotiators to reach a compromise last night on a continuing resolution. New polling finds that most Americans want their leaders to reach a negotiated agreement rather than stake out their respective positions. Polls from Gallup and the Wall Street Journal/NBC News find that self-identified Democrats and independents want leaders to compromise while self-identified Republicans would rather see the government shut down than compromise.

Last night, Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) appeared on Fox News to explain his uncompromising position over funding the federal government. At one point, Pence appeared to let the truth slip out about the true aims of Republican negotiators, telling host Greta Van Susteren that what Republicans are trying to do is score a victory for the Republican people. Soon after realizing that he said that out loud, he backtracked, saying that he wants to score a victory for the American people, not the Republican Party:

7. This is long overdue
The one thing both sides have done for years now is somehow convince people that these types of battles are simply two groups who are passionate about the people, but with different ideas on how to get the job done.

Freudian as it may have been, the statement is one that needed to be said so we can get the truth in front of the American people.

That truth is that Republicans are not interested in what the people want, only in what Republicans want. Their policies have reflected it for years, but only in the last couple of years have they decided to let it all hang out and go for the throat. Organized labor, women's rights, seniors, the poor, all have been under direct assault, especially since the 112th Congress began in January.

When will progressives begin an equal attack on the elitist policies and principles they stand for? And not using the same tired rhetoric of "tax cuts for the rich". It's time to put some of the progressive intellect to work and attack their hatred with logic, evidence, TRUTH.

The bottom line is conservative ideology supports the elite, the wealthy. Progressive ideology benefits all, including the wealthy elites.

It's time to show the American people the truth.
