And she had a plan also that was detailed and an integral part of that checklist.
The plan was called “Six for ’06” during the November election cycle. But as Jake Tapper of ABC News points out the Democrats “have no major legislative accomplishments” during the first 100 days after assuming control of the House of Representatives.
Charles Gibson introduced the Trapper report Friday evening thusly:
“When Democrats took control of the Congress in January, they promised it would be a new day. They’d get things done. They even had a checklist. Well, a hundred days after taking control, we’ve checked the checklist. Here’s our senior political correspondent, Jake Tapper.”
Jake Tapper: “The anniversary of the Democrats’ takeover of Congress one hundred days ago was greeted with scorn today by Republicans.”
Senator Trent Lott: “Here we are, on Friday the 13th, discussing the first 100 days of the 110th Congress. They’re gone, may they rest in peace.”
Tapper: “Democrats, after all, have no major legislative accomplishments to mark this anniversary. None of their ‘Six for ’06’ campaign promises last year have made it to the President’s desk.”
Senator Mitch McConnell: “The result of that of course is that nothing has been accomplished.”
Tapper: “Democrats in the House and Senate have passed bills [list on screen] allowing funding of embryonic stem cell research, increasing the minimum wage, implementing 9/11 commission recommendations and funding the Iraq war while requiring troops to start withdrawing. But Democratic leaders have yet to reconcile the House and Senate versions of these bills and send them to the White House. And while campaigning last year Democrats emphasized the laws they would pass, today they say their success should be judged differently.”
Senator Charles Schumer: “Change, accountability and oversight have become more than words, they’ve become our mission.”
Indeed they have Schumer and reporter Trapper notes that as well:
“Democrats conducted twice as many oversight hearings over the Bush administration as Republicans did last year — on Iraq, the fired U.S. Attorneys, the environment, the list goes on. And this new dynamic has led to chest-thumping standoffs between the White House and Capitol Hill.”
Fuck what the Party promised during the election right Schumer? To hell with the 100 days or the 6 very specific promises made correct Schumer?
Meanwhile idiots like you waste a week or two crying about lost emails, from personal accounts set up to comply with Federal law and to be used for political correspondence, looking for reasons to slam someone for writing or talking about POLITICALLY appointed U.S. Attorneys General.
The [Dim]ocrats didn’t take control of the House of Representatives, the populace just gave the asylum keys to the inmates.
