The 113th Congress is on track to pass fewer bills than any since the clerk's office started keeping track in the mid-1940s.

Boehner says Congress "ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal."

Boehner says Congress "should not be judged by how many new laws we create."

OOps/ I was interrupted with a phone call and accidentally sent the message half completed.
It should read:
Last year Biden said we had Al Queda on the run. This year Al Queda has us on the run. What happened to standing, and fighting? Was it part of our plan to aid them in the prison breaks? Is closing the Embassies a way of keeping them from discussing Benghazi? You know they have all been moved around since last September.

Nothing flows nice with Obama around.

That we ought to pay them by the hour at the minimum wage (only when they are in committee, or on the floor debating/voting).
