“The American people chose divided government.” Well, that’s yet another ‘half truth’ from failed Vice Presidential candidate, Paul Ryan. The Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, has made similar misleading claims in his never-ending search for bargaining power during the ongoing federal budget negotiations.
After the November 2012 elections, we once again have a Democratic President, a Democratic majority in the Senate and a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. Yep, that does sound like a divided government, and they sure have shown how divided they really are. But, no, the American people did not vote for that division.
