What a shock when Democrats controlled both houses they pushed through all the crap they wanted. When they didn't they shut down every Republican proposal, and of course in a liberals point of view that means that Republicans aren't being productive. Democrats refuse to do their job but it's the Republicans responsibility. Liberals truly are deathly allergic to taking responsibility for their actions, aren't they.

The GOP/Teapublicans set out to obstruct and they certainly have. What a sad excuse for governing.
So what you are saying is the Democratic leadership in the Senate is impotent to the point that their existence is immaterial to the governing of the nation?

Nice spin....... LOL!


I pointed out that the Republican led House has been very productive.
I pointed out that the Congress consists of the House and Senate.
I pointed out how it is Democrat Harry Reid that has Tabled the majority of the Houses hard work.
Nothing about popularity, where you want to spin it!!!!! LOL! again

So I am reading the replies and I get to this. I don't think much more of anything else needs said. If Congress was doing a good job very few new laws would need passed.

Good grief, did you sleep during every civics lesson taught from, say, 3rd grade on? Would it be too obvious to point out that one of the two chambers of Congress is held by the Democrat party? Even "School House Rock" didn't get through to you?

Or to point out the Democrat-controlled chamber is, in fact, the one where countless bills passed by the Republican-controlled chamber have more or less been thrown into a trash bin by the Democrat leadership?

To do what the oath they took says.
Protect freedom & liberty for ALL individuals. Not just those that threw money at you during your campaign and taking as much away from those that despise you..

It does not click to very many, that every law made, is a restriction of liberty for some individual, or a big group of individuals.

Our Centralized Government, took an oath to defend individual liberty, not take it away piece by piece.

This is wonderful. A "do nothing" Congress is a wonderful thing. Almost every new law either raises taxes or reduces freedom so I rejoice when we have a "do nothing" congress.

Thank you Tea Party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
