Since 2010, Congressional Republicans have blocked every piece of legislation proposed by President Obama that addressed job creation, small business and taxes that benefit the low income and middle-class citizens. Any measures that would have improved the economy for our country have been decapitated and left demasked of honorable recognition. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, Speaker of the U.S. House, have bragged unabashedly, about the fact they would not do anything to help this economy as long as Barack Obama is President.
This reminds me of Greek Mythology, where men considered themselves "Gods" and felt they could involuntarily control the fate of mankind by exiling anyone who does not uphold their flawless standards and their own political agenda. Today, it is these men who use their pens as swords to punish the innocent, who would benefit from the economy’s growth because of the name Obama. Today, it is these men who use their voices as inflated political egos to denounce anything equated with economic growth, because it reigns under the Banner of Obama. Today, it is these men who claim to Love the American People, but would rather see American people in a “Depressed Economy” instead of a “Progressed Economy” all because of the name Obama.
So, who’s Really at Fault for Stopping Growth in our Economy?
