Time for the GOP to put country above party

Now that President Obama has been reelected, denying Senator Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues their stated goal of making him a one-term president, perhaps Republicans will put country above party to help solve this nation’s problems.

They need to consider targeted spending cuts along with graduated tax increases, particularly on those who can most afford it. Perhaps Republicans will now realize that the only pledge they should be making is to the United States of America, not to unelected lobbyists such as Grover Norquist.
