Nothing Works

“[GOP lawmakers'] willingness to say no to everything — the fact that since 2007 they have filibustered about 500 pieces of legislation that would help the middle class just gives you a sense of how opposed they are to any progress — has actually led to an increase in cynicism and discouragement among the people who were counting on us to fight for them,” said Obama at a May 7 fundraiser. "The conclusion is, well, nothing works."
