WASHINGTON, September 30 -
Where, oh where has the Senate gone? Where, oh where can they be? With time so short and issues so long, where, oh where has the Senate gone?
The House has offered a compromise. We have passed legislation to fund the government and postpone Obamacare for one year. But the Senate and the President refuse to work with us , refuse to negotiate, refuse to compromise, even refuse to talk to us.
While were here until nearly 1 a.m. on Sunday morning, the Senate was gone. The President , according to the New York Times, played golf over the weekend.
So the President will negotiate with the Iranians, the President will negotiate with the Russians about Syria, but the President and the Senate will not talk to the House.
Aren’t Americans as important as the Syrians, Russians, and Iranians?
I guess the Senate and the President have other priorities, but their inaction of talking to us will cause a shutdown.
Where oh where has the Senate gone?
Where, oh where they can they be?
With times so short, and issues so long, where, oh where has the Senate gone?
And that’s just the way it is.
