Like a scratched record skipping since 2009, Democrats repeat: “Republicans are the Party of No.” If you haven’t heard it in a while, here are a few reminders: watch Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid remind us on the Senate floor that “a few extreme Republicans” blocking bills are weakening the U.S. internationally and empowering Putin; or watch House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tell Daily Show Host Jon Stewart, “It’s very hard to negotiate with them,” (that’s right, “them” being the naysaying Republicans); and who can forget Obama’s last Presidential run, campaigning day in and day out that Republicans, “spend all their time attacking Democrats, instead of attacking problems.” (Frankly, we could argue that Democrats are the problem, but we digress).
Well, the tables recently turned in Iowa – and Democrats are being exposed as the contrary folks calling names and refusing to cross party lines. With his hand in the pocket of trial lawyers – Representative Bruce Braley was caught on camera calling Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley just, “a farmer” without a law degree. Braley warns that if Republicans take back the Senate, the Judiciary Committee would be in the hands of a farmer! The horror!
Mark Jacobs knows how important it is to work toward solutions, and he looks forward to working with Senator Grassley. Take a look at his latest ad to hit the Iowa airwaves.
Oh, and when we take back the Senate this November, you can bet your tail it won’t be a ‘party of No’ we’ll be throwing!
