What is the "Party of No"? They're the members of Congress, mostly Republicans, who will vote "no" on anything President Obama or the Democrats are in favor of ... like tax breaks for small businesses apparently (see above), health care reform, climate change legislation, the DREAM Act, etc, etc, etc.
