Maybe you know of a House-passed bill since 2011 that was taken up for a vote in the Senate. The rest of us don't.
Even the 2013 GOP bill to avoid part of the fiscal cliff, a GOP bill to pave the way for tax reform, the Keystone Pipe bill, and the House’s Cut, Cap, and Balance long-term spending plan languishes in the Senate. So far, 40 bills are still waiting for an up or down vote in the Senate.
Harry Reid is apparently peeved at Republicans for not going along with Democrats in making Americans pay more in taxes.
So he's abusing his power to get back at them by obstructing bills that would have a positive effect on jobs and the economy at our expense.
Well, we all know (at least the informed ones) the House only brings to vote what the House leader wants.

GUBERNATORIAL
Is Wendy Davis' political star fading in Texas gubernatorial race?
By Kelley Beaucar VlahosPublished September 02, 2014FoxNews.com

As a feisty state senator with pink sneakers and a fist in the air, Wendy Davis captured both the love and the ire of America last year when she pulled an 11-hour filibuster of anti-abortion measures in the Texas Capitol.
But after using that star power to win her party's nomination for governor, Davis is still struggling to take a lead over Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, and some say party confidence in her race is waning.
"I think the frustration in some Democratic circles is that, despite her star power and substantial war chest, she has not been able to move the dial against Greg Abbott after a year on the campaign trail," Mark Jones, political science professor at Rice University in Houston, told FoxNews.com .
Even the high-profile, abuse-of-power indictment of Republican Gov. Rick Perry, whom Davis hopes to replace, didn't seem to hurt Abbott or raise the Democrat's profile over the media din.
Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, said the Perry indictment might even give Abbot "a bit of a boost since Republicans are so angry that it happened."
In an illustrative moment, Davis, 51, was forced to hit back against the head of the Democratic Governors Association back in April when he suggested publicly that her race wasn't competitive enough to be considered a top-tier priority. "We're hopeful in Texas, but we all understand that Democrats haven't won Texas in a long time," DGA Chairman and Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin told reporters.
It didn't take long for Davis, an attorney who has been serving in the Texas state Senate since 2008, to respond. She called Shumlin "uninformed" and a "Washington, D.C., desk jockey." But by then, the media narrative that Davis's campaign was on an impossible journey was on its way.
It's been a tough narrative to break.
"For Wendy Davis, Filibuster Goes Only So Far in Race to Be Governor of Texas," blared a headline in The New York Times in June, along with an accounting of the campaign's alleged weaknesses, including the hiring of a Washington, D.C., operative instead of a Lone Star State political veteran for her campaign manager. "She didn't have any Texas experience," Jones said of campaign manager Karin Johanson, who has since left.
Others say the Davis campaign did a poor job of "controlling her own story." A Dallas Morning News profile back in January, for instance, poked holes in what had ostensibly been a rags-to-riches journey. "I hated that piece," Cenk Uygur, co-host of the progressive "Young Turks" said at the time. "It was a hatchet job ... and of course the conservatives loved it and went to town on it."
Jones said "the bubble was burst" by some of the revelations in the story, like that Davis pursued her law degree at Harvard, which her husband had paid for by liquidating his own 401k fund. They later divorced.
Analysts cited a recoil from that story, and shortly afterward a poll was released showing that her unfavorability ratings were actually going up among women.
Until August, state polls generally had her trailing Abbott, by between 10 and 15 points on average. Analysts say any Democrat would have a difficult time winning in a Republican-dominated state that President Obama lost by 16 percentage points in 2012.

How many bills did the House pass since Jan 2011 that either repealed the ACA, Weakened the ACA, defunded the ACA, weakened the Dodd/Frank bill, or in general had a poison pill ion it.

Carol is just another dumbass right whiner who backs the Republican strategy of hold us back in order to try to win the next election just as she backed the Republican efforts under Bush that created the worst recession in 780 f*cking years.
The difference between the right whiners and ISIS, is at least ISIS is honest about hating America.
Millions of young people are refusing to sign up for Obamacare. This administration counted on this age group for Obamacare to work.

There as many uninsured now as before Obamacare. That hasn't changed.

It's estimated 80 million more Americans will lose their employer-based insurance this fall.

The jargon and complicated fee structure enrolling in Obamacare has created a lot of confusion for many consumers.

The concept people don’t understand is the deductible. The very cheapest plans have very big deductibles.(The amount consumers must pay in every year before insurance kicks in.)

It's my guess a lot of Americans who once thought this was a good idea have already changed their minds or soon will and will regret the GOP didn't succeed in their efforts to repeal it.

"Media hype does not produce votes most of the time," Sabato said. "Wendy Davis received enormous amounts of state and national coverage, but the Democratic base in Texas is nowhere near a majority of the electorate."
Not everyone agrees. The media narrative is so bound to the notion that no Democrat can win the red state -- much less a left-of-center liberal who during the debate over new abortion restrictions accused Perry of "demonizing women" -- that some are ignoring the latest poll. An Aug. 8 survey by Rasmussen showed Davis only trailing Abbott by 8 points.(As for the abortion restrictions, they passed anyway even after the filibuster, but they were recently put on hold after a federal judge found them unconstitutional.)
"The intelligence you have is not correct at all -- the level of excitement for Wendy this summer has been tremendous," exclaimed Jan Soifer, chairwoman of the Travis County Democratic Party in Austin, in an interview with FoxNews.com .
"In the heat of the summer in Texas we never get this level of enthusiasm, but we are," she added. "It's amazing."
Political analyst Liz Chadderdon agrees that the whole story is not playing out in press. "She has energized people that have not been energized for Texas governor's races," she said.
"Trust me -- the polls may not be reflecting how much energy there is on the ground for Wendy, but I think you're going to see that change as we get post-Labor Day, she's got $20 million and she will be up on television. I think you're going to see this race change very quickly."

Well, why do you socialists want a monarchy? Have you heard of the Constitution? Have you read the Constitution? Have you ever heard of the term, "Checks and Balances" ? Do you know what it means? Do you know how law is made? If you just look at the Constitution, you would see Article I, has 10 mostly lengthy sections, Article 2, has 4-Sections, and Article 3 has 3-Sections. In order they are rules and laws governing the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches of Government. The power of our government is supposed to rest with the people via the morons we elect to the legislature. The president's job is to EXECUTE the laws passed by the Legislature and Judicial is to fix squabbles. The right wants the president to do his job, not campaign, not make law, but enforce it. The problem the right has, is we expect the imbeciles on the left to know how our Democratic Republic works. What are you going to do if we elect a hard right winger to the Presidency and he disregards the Constitution like this POS has.
Funny. I guess the right only wants these things when their president isn't in office.

I wonder why?

Any other time it's A-ok!!!!

Environmentalist Gore allowed zinc mine
I
In a valley next to Al Gore Jr.'s farm near Carthage, Tenn., ground limestone left over from zinc mining spreads out like a white blanket. Some of the lime is sold to treat soil that is too acidic.
ZINC MINING DISASTERS
CARTHAGE, Tenn. While area zinc mines have a good environmental track record, according to state officials and regulatory reports, abandoned zinc mines in the tri-state area of Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri caused one of the worst environmental disasters in the country.
Four thousand mines in the area operating from the 19th century until 1970 produced 23 million tons of zinc concentrates and 4 million tons of lead concentrates.
Near the end of mining, some companies mined the pillars of rock supporting the mine roofs. This caused 500 collapses in the area.
More damage was caused when the abandoned mines filled up with water creating an acidic stew that dissolved metals, some very toxic. This water then contaminated nearby ground and surface water.
Finally, the leftover waste rock from mining covered 4,000 acres in the area.
As a result:
• Sites in the area were placed on the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund list after toxic levels of lead, cadmium and zinc were found in the soil and groundwater.
• A University of Kansas School of Medicine study found an unusually high incidence of cancer, particularly lung cancer in two Kansas counties.
• Several families had to be moved out of their homes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory.
• Thousands were taken off well water, put on public water systems and had the soil in their yards cleaned.
Overall, the cleanup has cost millions, all borne by residents and taxpayers because the former owners had long ago gone out of business.
Tennessee environmental officials say, and Ronald Cohen, a professor at the Colorado School of Mines agrees, that the Carthage area mines are protected from acid runoff because the zinc ore is contained in limestone, which neutralizes acid.

The Pasminco Zinc Mine, is situated on Gore's plantation you big time dumbass...

You dumbass neglect to mention that in a recent study the Environmental Protection Agency found Tennessee's water pollution to be the second-worst in the nation because of Gore you moron. And Gore avoids mentioning that he is directly responsible for Tennessee's water pollution, you loser.

Al Gore, the most hated man in Tennessee, whom lost his home state running for President and the worlds first "Carbon Billionaire" you retard...

The "Pasminco Zinc Mine" owned by the Gore family and is situated in the middle of Al Gore's plantation...- Al Gore... forever polluting the Caney Fork river in Tennessee, a major drinking water tributary and polluting the Cumberland River in Kentucky...- AL Gore's Zinc Mine pollution spreads in 2 states...
