Voters are angry! The rise of Donald Trump (R) is evidence of that. We have Congress to thank for that. In 2010, the House of Representatives said “give us a majority and we can fix Obama’s problems“. Voters gave them a majority. In 2014, the Senate said “give us a majority and we can override Obama’s overreach“. Voters gave them a majority. Results? Both segments of the Congress did nothing to stop Obama’s overreach and in fact, did nothing to stand up to him but rather approved all his programs without a fight!
Their excuse was that “Obama would only veto it“. So what! Put it on his desk and let him be responsible for killing a program. The saddest part is that some of the programs that Congress agreed to they didn’t even read … too many pages, too little time.
Conservative Review and Heritage Action both have Scorecards on their websites where they rate the Representatives and Senators on how often they vote Conservative/Constitution values. You can see how your own Rep or Senator voted on the key bills. The liberal Democrats seem to be voting as their constituents want since their Conservative/Constitution scores are so low. The Republicans obviously aren’t voting for Conservative values (except for Jim Jordan) which explains why voters are so angry!
