Here should be the Republican address when in the State of the Union President Obama calls Republicans obstructionists. The Republican reply should read the Constitutional provision for all spending and taxing bills to begin in the House of Representatives. Then the spokesman for the Republican reply would say - we have a duty to the citizens who elected us and they tell us they are paying enough taxes. We represent them not the president or the Senate, now deal with it. We aren't authorizing any additional spending nor any new taxes. Deal with it.
