‘repugnant and reckless obstructionism’

Time: AFSCME President rips Republicans for putting “billionaires ahead of the needs of … America’s middle class” …. suggests sympathy for Obama’s decision.

American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Pres. Gerald W. McEntee made the following statement on the tax compromise:

“Unless Senate Republicans could keep the tax breaks for billionaires, they were willing to raise the taxes of every American working family. They put the interest of billionaires ahead of the needs of millions of unemployed workers and America’s middle class. Their repugnant and reckless obstructionism should now be clear to all. They were willing to do real harm to millions of families if they didn’t get their way. There are no easy choices facing us when GOP senators are willing to sacrifice the middle class in order to protect the interest of Wall Street and the very wealthy. We will continue the fight to require the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share.”
