No you won't
The “Party of No” designation needs to be looked at in the context of the differing political positions. The Democrats have the opinion that government should be resolving issues. They want government to determine the price of carry on luggage, how much people should be paid, and what products people should be forced to buy. The Republicans and Conservatives disagree with all of the above and believe that people should be responsible for their own actions, purchase what they want when they want, and that the whole system works better if the government does what it was designed to do and limits itself to those tasks. Both sides agree that the government has certain responsibilities but completely disagree with where those responsibilities begin and end. It is a small wonder that whichever group is in the minority is devoted to obstruction the plans of the other.
