The Republican Party in Whole Has Lost Their Collective Minds

Here is your Republican Senate at work. I encourage all citizens to look at these cherry picked items. They show that the Republican Party does not have the best interests of the American Public in mind. Instead it shows without a doubt who they work for, big business and oil barons. These items show that the average American Republican voter has been duped!

I challenge any person of sound mind, logic and reason to justify these actions. Explain how any of these things help anyone other than the rich and powerful. I don't think any person of moral character can justify any of it.

I searched through the list provided by http://gov.mtopgroup.com/art1/live/senate for keywords like "Social Security", "Environment" and "Keystone". The results were utterly shocking. I swear, if any Republican voter looks through this list and approves, I'll be certain that the Republican party in whole has lost their collective minds.

I hope this helps. We sure need it.
