Democrats control the Senate, Republicans control the House. More like the partisan congress. Nothing substantial has passed through congress in a very long time.
However, the Democrats are pushing the new talking point that it is a Republican Congress that is at fault for the problems. Obama is running as a lame-duck president, won’t work.
The Hill reported:
President Obama and Democrats on Capitol Hill are increasingly referring to the Congress as “Republican” even though their party controls one-half of the unpopular institution.
Obama and his allies have started to deploy the phrase “Republican Congress” in what some experts see as a clear attempt to gain a political advantage.
“I’m the first one to acknowledge that the relations between myself and the Republican Congress have not been good over the last several months, but it’s not for lack of effort,” Obama told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos earlier this month.
“It has to do with the fact that, you know, they’ve made a decision to follow what is a pretty extreme approach to governance,” he said.
And other Democrats have used the term.
