Greetings to the Hall,
We are three week into a government shutdown and the best that my Democratic jelly fish can do, is put forth a bill that will delay another government shutdown and debt ceiling for another couple of months. After three weeks, this is what you call growing a backbone and standing up to the republican party?
For my Democratic jelly fish, lets have a recap.
- In theory we have a Democratic President.
- You have polls showing that the American people are sick of the Tea Party Republicans.
- You have control over the Senate.
- You only need two handfuls of Moderate Republicans to gain control of the House.
- You know that the American people are disgusted with all of congress.
My fellow Progressives, please do not have other organizations do you damn job. Stand up my fellow Progressives, my Democrats in Congress. This is your time to seize the day, this is your time to storm the mountain, this is your time to use the hammer that the American people gave you.
Strike these Tea Party Republicans down, push them all the way past the brink. Let, their financial backers feel the fear of going past the debt ceiling. Bring the full horror down on top of their heads. Do the unthinkable, make demands, put forth new social programs. The government has been down for three weeks, you can do better than passing a bill to delay this fight.
Fight the damn fight, you Democrats in congress. Fight, that is what a whole host of Progressives have been doing since President Obama has been elected. The American people are looking for a fight, and you are our representatives, if you are not going to fight, then who is?
Have you my fellow Progressives, my fellow Democrats, lived up to the ideals presented above. Are you prepared to fight the fight that is in front of you.
STAND UP, STAND UP AND DECLARE WE WILL REPRESENT OUR PEOPLE, OUR IDEALS, AND WE HAVE THE HAMMER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GAVE US.
