The Republicans – The Party of No

It started with Nancy Reagan who said: “Just say no to drugs.”

The Republicans just say No to everything.

  • No Support for the Unemployed.
  • No Help if you’re Facing Foreclosure.
  • No Health Insurance for 45 to 50 Million Americans – about one in six.
  • No Vision for The Future.
  • No Understanding of Science.
  • If you’re a lobbyist, peddling influence and campaign contributions, “No, I’m not busy, come in.”
  • And if you’re on Wall Street, No way you’re responsible for your actions. You’re too big to fail. The Government will bail you out. It’s the American Way!

The Party of No!
