Republicans have done a great job not only creating record high disapproval levels, their obstructionism combined with wasting money and alienating rhetoric sustained those high levels of disapproval. If you’re a Republican, you may be tempted to believe your mission was accomplished. The only problem is high levels of congressional disapproval also means high voter turnout at election time. We all know what that means.
Ever since they took control of the House, Republicans made their priorities clear and none of them involves representing the will of the people. The GOPT is beholden to the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Walmart and other corporate interests that pull Republican lawmaker’s strings with money that is both big and dark.
Republicans were on one huge reverse Robin Hood mission, determined to find new ways and means to satisfy the insatiable greed of the Kochs, the Waltons and anyone else you would find at an ALEC get together. In the name of pandering to their most extreme elements, Republicans obstructed and destroyed their way to the highest disapproval of congress ever some time ago. They have managed to sustain that level of contempt for a congress that takes food out of the mouths of children to give bigger handouts to the Koch brothers. Americans see through Republican denials of global warming in the name of giving the Koch brothers the freedom to poison our planet for profit.
Republicans achieved the last thing they wanted when they obstructed popular policies, and thumbed their noses at everyone in America except those who lined GOPT pockets. They angered voters enough for them to want change from an anti-American and anti-America congress to one that governs for the people.
