While it looks as though he is unlikely to win tomorrows presidential election, Mitt Romney shouldnt expect cooperation from Senate Democrats should he manage to prove all the pollsters wrong. In a statement issued from his office on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said that his caucus will not work at all with Romney to pass his severely conservative agenda:
Mitt Romneys fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his severely conservative agenda is laughable. In fact, Mitt Romneys Tea Party agenda has already been rejected in the Senate. In the past few months, we have voted down many of the major policies that Mitt Romney has run on, from the Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it, to the Blunt Amendment to deny women access to contraception, to more tax giveaways for millionaires and billionaires, to a draconian spending plan that would gut critical services for seniors and the most vulnerable Americans.
Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the Tea Party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romneys record to suggest he would act any differently as president. As governor of Massachusetts, he had a terrible relationship with Democrats, cordoning himself off behind a velvet rope instead of reaching out to build relationships. And in the near-decade that Mitt Romney has spent running for president, both his words and his actions have shown that pleasing the far right is more important to him than working across the aisle.
Senate Democrats are committed to defending the middle class, and we will do everything in our power to defend them against Mitt Romneys Tea Party agenda.
Now, Republicans wont have the votes to pass Romney agenda, barring surprise wins tomorrow night.
