(Chuck Muth) – Will some Nevada legislative Republicans ever learn that “no” isn’t a four-letter word?
Maybe they should take a page from congressional Republicans who – after two years of sticking together and collectively saying no, no, no, no, no, no, no to everything bad from ObamaCare to a “stimulus” scheme that stimulated nothing but higher unemployment – picked up an historical number of seats in last week’s election and regained the majority in the United States House of Representatives.
And those Republicans are STILL saying “no.”
“The Obama administration’s hopes of reaching a tax deal with Republicans that would decouple rates on the rich from the middle class appear dead,” The Hill reported yesterday. “House GOP Whip Eric Cantor (Va.) threw cold water on the proposed plan, which would temporarily extend tax cuts for the wealthy while permanently extending tax cuts for the middle class.”
“Taxes shouldn’t be going up on anybody right now,” Cantor said.
From Cantor’s lips to Sen. Raggio’s and Assemblyman Goicoechea’s ears. And every other Republican in the Nevada Legislature. No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
And no means no, ya know.
