DO NOT ASK WHAT WE DO The evening of January 20 2009 15 white males and their spouses met at an expensive restaurant in Washington DC Seven of the men were Congressmen Eric Cantor Kevin McCarthy Paul Ryan Pete Sessions Jeb Hensarling Pete Hoekstra and Dan Lungren; five were Senators Jim DeMint Jn Kyle Tom Coburn John Ensign and Bob Corker; journalist Fred Barnes former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and communications specialist Frank Luntz who had organized the meeting completed the group The men were in shock by the election of Barack Obama who had been inaugarated earlier that day and they were trying to figure out how to get the White House back into Republican hands They decided to stick together highlight any problem faced by a Democrat official and challenge the Democrats on every issue Their decision would have an amazing effect on The United States during the next four years In DO NOT ASK WHAT WE DO Robert Draper follows the 112 US House of Representatives during it’s first year The year began with the induction of 98 new Representatives and ended with the failure of Congress to enact a budget and the US Credit rating being downgraded from AAA to AA The book examines the styles of numerous players and how they affected Congress and by extension America Kevin McCarthy the House Whip observed that many of the new Congressmen were risk takers He identified “ Two types of leaders One was a thermometer who could accurately discern the temperature in the room The other type of leader was a thermostat who could actual change the environment Obama was a thermostat He saw himself as an entrepreneur a creator of wealth and jobs” Among attempts made for both parties to work together were getting to know you dinners between freshman and senior members At the end of 2010 Nancy Pelosi thought they should raise the debt ceiling in the lame duck congress President Obama disagreed and thought the Republicans would and should be eual partners in the discussion and would tread the matter in a reasonable fashion Part of President Obama’s plan was eliminating tax cuts for wealthy The Republicans wouldn’t pass it even though a majority of Republican voters approved That should not have been a surprise In 2007 and 2008 20% of Republicans voted against their own budget because it didn’t meet their terms Chris Van Hollen stated “I think the Republicans are going to pay a very heavy price for automatic defense cuts because of the extreme lengths they were prepared to go The American people saw that they wee literally willing to jeopardize te credit worthiness of the US in order to try and force upon the country their budget plans” The Democrats decided they couldn’t please the Republicans no matter what they did Their votes were needed to pass many Republican sponsored bills but there was support for the Democrat’s bills in return Among the pressures on the Republican Congressman was that the majority of fund raising profits were given to Conservative favorites Imagine what would happen to an organization when a large group of high ranking middle managers are brought in and have their own agenda Many have made promises about what they will accomplish without considering how much power their co workers will give them They refuse to compromise and maintain an adversarial position within the entire group concentrating on the wishes of their small constituency despite differing views and needs of the entire population that they represent As one would expect things would not go their way things that should be accomplished fail and everyone becomes angry and frustrated That is the sad story of the 112th Congress
