Hint: Civics is not their strong suit.
This is an actual post I saw being shared all over Tumblr Saturday night:
not many are aware, but a president is extremely, extremely, extremelyyy limited without a supporting senate and congress.
for example, if the majority of the party is republican, as it is with Obama, most of the bills and “promises” brought up will be vetoed and denied by the congress without us knowing, thus resulting in us blaming the president when in reality, the president needs OUR help even after being selected.
voting does NOT stop after the presidential election. the president of your choice winning does NOT mean the fight is over.
if you support and want all the things Bernie Sanders is in favor of, and want to see change, please vote for a senate and congress that will support and pass these ideas as well.
so if you’re “feeling the Bern”, don’t be upset if you don’t get the free college tuition. so please, please, please, PLEASE…vote for a respectful, progressive, open minded senate & congress (:
I’m guessing this person doesn’t know how Obamacare was passed?
Since when does Congress veto bills?
I’m guessing this person doesn’t know that there are plenty of ways to locate bills that were introduced and determine if they were “vetoed” or “denied” (i.e., their final status)?
By “respectful” and “open minded”, does this person mean passing a bill so that we can find out what is in it? How progressive!
We. Are. DOOMED.
