From where I 'sit', the GOP has been trying. Why do you think Reid is forever killing GOP bills that flow from the House to the Senate. Why do you think the dems are forever attacking the GOP and conservatives? Because dems know if the truth came out about the GOP party and what they tried to do over the past 7 years (the amount of time dems have controlled Congress), they would never win an election. For those that don't know, I'm speaking about the economy, jobs, bank regulation, mortgage regulating by Fannie and Freddie, and more.
