Scarborough: Republicans Think They’re Going Against Obama; They Think This Is 2009

‘That’s not working in 2021’
By Grabien Staff


SCARBOROUGH: “You look at these numbers and there’s overwhelming support from the American people for this infrastructure plan, and Republicans again, they're employing the same strategies that they employed in 2009 against Barack Obama. It may have worked then, it's not going to work now. The Republican Party, 71% support modernizing highways, roads and streets. 64% support improving caregiving for old and disabled. 51% want to boost medical manufacturing. 60% support replacing lead water pipes and service lines. 62% building and improving public schools. 78% modernizing veterans' hospitals. Those are the Republicans, Mika, and it is overwhelming support. And here you have the Republicans, again, just like they did with COVID, all opposing it, bragging that they’re all going to oppose it. You know what, after a while, this adds up. They’re going to have to come up with a new strategy because the 'just say no' strategy they employed against Barack Obama, the 'just say no' strategy the Republican Party has employed on healthcare over the past 11 years, not putting forward a single unifying healthcare plan for the Republican Party, that’s not working in 2021.”
