The Senate's second-ranking Democrat said Saturday it is time for Republicans to stop stonewalling and engage in "compromise and cooperation" to get the nation's business done. "Sadly, Republicans in Washington are determined to make this a 'no-can-do' Congress," Sen. Dick Durbin said in the Democrats' weekly radio address. Durbin said Republican lawmakers are acting as if it is to their party's benefit to block progress on issues that are important to the American people. "They think the less a Democratic-led Congress achieves, the better it's going to be for Republicans in next year's elections," he said. "But those elections are 11 months away! And America needs help now."
