Republicans took to the Senate floor today to address the failure of leadership from the president and Senate Democrats. Never before have a president and a Senate done so little when America's challenges are so great. Democrats' response to a host of challenges, from an unemployment rate over 8 percent to a soaring national debt, has been to do nothing. The American people deserve better. They deserve senators who live up to their responsibilities to tackle America's toughest problems head-on, instead of constantly pushing them down the road for future Congresses and future generations to solve.
