House Democrats don’t even know who President Barack Obama is anymore, to borrow a cliché. They feel he’s more eager to appease Republicans in the name of compromise than to back his loyal supporters in Congress, The Hill reports.

house, democrats, obama“How is it that the House Democrats played such an important role [in the majority], and all of a sudden [the White House says], ‘Forget it, we’ll work with the Senate and the Republican leadership?’” asked Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar, vice chairman of the Democrats’ Steering and Policy Committee.

House liberals already were upset at being bypassed in December, when Obama agreed to extend the Bush era tax cuts to all Americans, abandoning his proposal to raise rates for the wealthy. And now the House Democrats are upset with the tenor of negotiations for a debt limit increase and budget deal.
