…will not compromise. The Progressive-Democratic Party refused President Donald Trump’s offer of compromise and bipartisan work during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. They booed Trump’s request that both parties work together on immigration reform, never minding that he offered DACA protections—via legislation, yet, rather than an ephemeral Executive Order—for one million more children brought here illegally and young(er) adults brought here illegally as children than ex-President Barack Obama (D) had.
They sat, refusing even to acknowledge with polite applause, our nation’s economic successes.
That subset of the Progressive-Democratic Party, the Congressional Black Caucus (a misnomer, since they refuse to allow black Republicans to join the group), sat on their hands, refusing to acknowledge black unemployment gains—the lowest level since the statistic began being recorded—and Hispanic unemployment gains—the lowest level since that statistic began being recorded.
The Progressive-Democrats refused to acknowledge a child whose efforts led to American flags being put, on Veterans Day, on the graves of veterans that otherwise would have gone begging.
They even refused to acknowledge the work done to redress Government’s failures regarding our veterans—they just sat, like bumps on a log.
Some of them boycotted the speech rather than respecting the occasion, rather than respecting their own constituents by representing them at the speech.
Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D, IL) even stalked out of the speech after the bulk of the Representatives and Senators present began chanting “USA! USA!”
This is the contempt in which the Progressive-Democratic Party holds us Americans.
Remember their intransigence and their arrogance this fall.
