After today’s Senate vote to eliminate the use of the filibuster for presidential nominees (except for the Supreme Court), Mitch McConnell vowed revenge.

The GOP has obstructed Obama's ideas, but the reasons have been philosophical, not partisan. Or have they? A corporate-tax proposal is the tell.
The real culprit is much simpler.
