Obama at Clinton Rally: Only Way to Break Gridlock Is to Make Republicans ‘Pay a Price’

obamaPresident Obama spoke in some very harsh terms about Republicans at Hillary Clinton‘s massive Philadelphia rally tonight as he made a plea for people to elect more Democrats.

This was perhaps the last time the president would have a national platform to vent his frustrations about the opposition, saying that people can’t just stick Clinton with Republicans promising “unprecedented” obstruction.

But then he went on to declare that the way to stop it is to make Republicans “pay a price”:

“Gridlock is not mysterious. It’s not something that happens because both sides are being equally unreasonable. It has been a stated Republican strategy since I took office. And the only way to break it it to make those who engage in it pay a price by electing more Democrats tomorrow.”

He proceeded to use this massive platform to call out Pennsylvania Senate incumbent Pat Toomey before telling people “if you think endless gridlock will help your family, you should vote Republican.”
