Republicans Finally Stand Up To Obama, But Is It Too Late?

Republicans in the Senate have had a long history of bowing to the will of President Obama.  Despite having a majority in the Senate, they have presented no unified objection to his liberal policies.  On Thursday, the Republicans finally stood together in opposition of Obama’s failed policies.  But it just may be too late.

The Senate passed legislation on Thursday that would repeal Obamacare and also defund Planned Parenthood.  According to Fox News, the vote was right down the party lines.  The final vote was 52-47 to tear down Obama’s pet projects. 

This vote may be more bark than bite at this point because Obama has been saying for months that he will veto any legislation that defunds the abortion giant or repeals his failing healthcare law.  When the president goes through with his veto, the Senate and House Republicans will not be able to muster the two-thirds needed to override the veto.

The show of solidarity against these two democratic agendas is really about the 2016 election.  The Republicans are going to make Obama use his veto powers and show the American people exactly where his values are.  That should benefit the Republican presidential and congressional candidates whose constituents are fed up with the liberal policies.

“President Obama will have a choice,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “He can defend a status quo that’s failed the middle class by vetoing the bill, or he can work toward a new beginning and better care by signing it.”

No matter what happens from here, it is quite refreshing to see the Republican party starting to act like itself again.  Do you agree?
