U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., said today the current Senate majority and the president's idea of leadership is regulation, red tape and bills with good titles, but bad substance. Enzi's full statement in below:
"The president, the administration and the Senate majority have failed to govern during a crucial time for our nation. There is a willingness to kick our problems down the road with the hopes that the next election will suddenly inspire action. Rome burned while Nero fiddled. We have had enough fiddling. The president's answer to jobs in the economy was to have his failed budget. Three times it was voted on without a single vote in favor, not even a single Democrat in favor. Over 23 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed. Government regulations and red tape stunt business growth. That's not leadership. That's being asleep at the wheel. Their answer to jobs is a bill with a good title and a poison pill that comes right to the floor, and it's set up so the poison pill can't be amended out and then they wonder why the bill doesn't pass. That's politics. That's not legislating. What's their plan for America? We have yet to see one. Lack of a budget shows they don't have a plan, and inaction remains the status quo. Republicans are prepared to lead today and in the future."
