I know, it's hard to believe. They haven't done a thing in 2 years, but they need a good long break. I guess they might as well go home early, they weren't doing America any good anyways.

They couldn't even make it to the end of the day. They all left before lunchtime.

You'd think they would want to at least pretend to be working, since this Congress achieved the lowest ethics poll from any profession ever from Gallup.

I think Americans trust street-hookers more than they trust the 212th Republican led House.

You'll love this chart showing how well they've done compared to other sessions at passing ANYTHING:

But they unsuccessfully voted to repeal ObamaCare 33 times! That's right Thirty-Three Times!

Boehner sure must be proud! I hear he's a little bit worried about losing his job this year. Maybe they should have passed a jobs act.

This is a really good article about their accomplishments.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/editoria...

Here's a good article about the Republicans strategy to block Obama in Congress, then blame him. They did a pretty good job of blocking him every step of the way. They won that battle and their record proves it.

Americans are the ones who lost. We needed our Congress working for us during these very difficult times after the Bush Disaster. Boehner decided that wasn't important.

So everybody went home. Nothing was getting done anyway, except for the Big Coal Bill.

I am quite sure that the Democrats have never or would never play with politics just before an election to beat the Republicans.
What do you take people for --- idiots? To you Democrats are saints and Republicans are evil bastards.

Did you look at the charts? They tell the story.
Why go back and forth about who thinks what? Let's just look at their record. Which is THE WORST EVER.

In fact, Google it. Use these terms "112th congress worst ever". It's pretty widely accepted by everybody.

The last time I checked there were Democrats in Congress and they totally controlled the House for the first two years that Obama was President. All the Democrats wanted to do was pass ObamaCare. I call that Congress the worst ever as they were too busy passing a bill that most Americans hate.

They were working for America. The Democrats actually made some concessions to the bill to work together with the Republicans, which did weaken is somewhat. Oddly enough, the Republicans haven't been working on much in a bi-partisan manner, have they?

It says more Americans approve of Obamacare than don't.

Odd, I haven't spoke to one person that approves of the bill. I am sure there are some that you could sell the Brooklyn Bridge to.

Don't we have a democrat Senate? Did they not leave? Aren't there some democrats in the House? Did they hang around?

You need to let go of the hate.

Kind of reminds me of Obama's vacations when people didn't have jobs.

Lose the hate. It's democrats, too.

Correction: YOU trust street hookers more than the House. Who cares what you think? Not me.

Get rid of the hate.

they cant pass any laws when the house isnt in session. not that they can pass anything good for our country when it is in session because of the republicans strategy of throwing the country in the garbage so it looks like obama isnt doing a good job.

you know thats exactly what they are doing.
