“Just say no. That seems to sum up the position of Republicans
these days,” civil rights
activist Rev. Jesse Jackson
began his column in the Chicago Sun-Times on Monday, criticizing elected GOP
“The scope of what they won’t do is breathtaking,” Jackson said, noting that the majority of Republicans were opposed to nearly every Democratic proposal — even when there was overwhelming support for the issue, such as the demand for sensible gun control
Later, Jackson warned people
not to fall for the GOP's attempts to rewrite history.
“Of course, when they run for re-election, Republicans will claim credit for Biden’s American Rescue Plan
, which was passed without a single Republican vote,” he added.
“No one should be duped,” Jackson concluded. “At a time when America is facing a cascade of crises, Republicans simply say no; if we want to even begin to address the problems we face, voters
will have to say no to those who are impeding progress.”
