Congress Didn’t Do Much in 2013, Doesn’t Plan to Do Anything in 2014 Either
By Margaret Hartmann
Considering that some of the biggest stories to come out of Congress this year involved feats of inactivity – including Rand Paul's drone filibuster, Ted Cruz's literal stand against Obamacare, and the ensuing government shutdown – it should come as no surprise that the legislative branch didn't accomplish much in 2013. Lawmakers are working on passing a moderate budget deal this week, but despite months of discussion about gun control, immigration, and the reform of government surveillance programs, legislation on those issues has stalled. And a look at the data on this year in congressional history reveals they didn't spend much time working on less high-profile legislation either.
The House of Representatives closed up shop last week, and the Senate is scheduled to adjourn for the year on Friday, but may head out as early as Wednesday. According to a New York Times analysis, that means the House has been at work for the fewest hours in a nonelection year since 2005 (which is as far back as the data goes). Per the Times:
Not counting brief, pro forma sessions, the House was in session for 942 hours, an average of about 28 hours each week it conducted business in Washington. That is far lower than the nearly 1,700 hours it was in session in 2007, the 1,350 hours in 2005 or even the 1,200 in 2011.
By a similar measure, the Senate was near its recorded lows for days on the floor. Senators have spent 99 days casting votes this year, close to the recent low point for a nonelection year in 1991, when there were 95 voting days.
The Washington Post predicts that things won't be much different in 2014. While Congress will probably reach an agreement on a farm bill and raise the debt ceiling next year, the budget deal is expected to be one of the last big pieces of legislation passed by the 113th Congress before everyone's attention turns to the midterm elections.(cont.)

Report: 50,000-60,000 paper Obamacare applications still haven’t been processed

The stunning number was buried in a Washington Post report Friday.

“Even though HealthCare.gov has been working better since the start of the month, there are still reasons why people may be having trouble getting coverage,” Amy Goldstein reports for the Post.“One significant reason is that the federal marketplace has accumulated a backlog of 50,000 to 60,000 paper applications as cracks have appeared in that low-tech method offered this fall as a backup plan, according to government officials.”

Vice President Joe Biden gropes White House reporter

. For most people’s tastes he’s grazing way too close to the vicinity of her abdomen. And watch her reaction. Is it shock, awe, utter disbelief? Whatever the expression, she appeared to roll with it with her hands firmly in control of his at least until the shot was over. If we were to guess her words we’d wager,“OH **** SO THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING.”

Congressman Trey Gowdy: Obama’s disregard of law ‘has reached an unprecedented level’[VIDEO]

“The case law that says members don’t have standing also allows for the institution itself — under a theory of vote nullification, that if the executive is just nullifying the votes of a co-equal branch of government — that we may have standing,” Gowdy said.“So an individual member — the case you referenced was Dennis Kucinich challenging the actions in Libya — he does not have standing.

Cleatus @ olddog
The left of center GOP establishment and further left Democrats view the American People as nothing more than tools with which to socially engineer America to suit their progressive big government agenda.

They are both on the same side, they just disagree on how to rule us.

There is practically no conservative representation in Washington. That has to change, or we will forever be serfs and paupers ruled by an elite plutocracy.

Joseph @ Cleatus
Anytime we have an admitted Marxist like Obama praising the "nonpartisan" activities of the GOP we have to recognize that the GOP has lost any sense of conservatism and has turned into a mere puppet of Obama. We need to get these traitors out of office.

Family values hypocrisy

By E.J. Dionne Jr., December 15, 2013

Politicians talk about family values but do almost nothing to help families. They talk about parental responsibility but do almost nothing to help parents. They talk about self-sufficiency but do precious little to make self-sufficiency a reality for those who must struggle hardest to achieve it.How often can we hear that government should be more responsive to the problems Americans face now? But the vogue for simply assuming that government cannot — or should not — do much of anything about those problems leads to paralysis. This, in turn, further increases disaffection from government.

For all these reasons, it was exciting last week to see Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut introduce the FAMILY Act, the acronym standing for their Family and Medical Insurance Leave Act. The bill would provide partial income for up to 12 weeks of leave for new parents and for other family demands, such as care for a sick family member, including a domestic partner.

How far behind the rest of the world is our country on this quintessential family values matter? The Post’s Amy Joyce cited a Harvard University study in 2004 noting that of 168 countries it examined, 163 had some form of paid maternity leave. We weren’t one of the 163. Joyce observed that “the U.S. is on par with places like Papua New Guinea and Swaziland when it comes to paid family leave.”

The usual knock on proposals of this sort is that they would put an excessive economic burden on employers — or cost the federal government money it doesn’t have. Gillibrand and DeLauro, both Democrats, solve this problem by establishing FAMILY as an insurance program. Premiums would range from about $72 to $227 a year, depending on a person’s income. The maximum benefit is capped at $4,000 a month. They expect the average monthly benefit to be less than half that. Yet in light of Congress’s dismal record since the Republican takeover of the House in 2010, it would be revolutionary to see any law passed that empowered individuals and families to ease their everyday difficulties.(cont.)

Any time government implements a law, someone gets paid and someone gets billed. A law requiring partial pay for a family medical leave would help a few families who take time to care for families but it would hurt millions of families who would find it hard to find a job that would hire married people for fear of them taking time off with pay for a BS Medical emergency.

A valued employee who needs time to care for a sick spouse or child will be granted time to do so with pay. A POS employee with the same problem will have a problem. Why? Because there is a difference between a valued employee and a POS employee. That's why. All government does is place worthless, lazy and abusive employees into the same legal category as a valued employee who works hard and goes the extra mile for the good of the company.

If someone wants a boss that will cater to their every need, they should take out a small business loan and become their own boss.

Tea Party Extremism Finally Pushes Boehner Over The Edge

John Boehner (R-OH) is finally fed up with Tea Party extremism. Behind closed doors, he told like-minded Republicans that Tea Party groups, such as Heritage Action and the Senate Conservatives Fund, do not actually stand for conservative principles and policy. The New York Times reports that people in the meeting recall Boehner saying,“They are not fighting for conservative principles. They are not fighting for conservative policy. They are fighting to expand their lists, raise more money and grow their organizations, and they are using you to do it. It’s ridiculous.”

While that might sound rich coming from someone who wouldn’t even call for votes because of Tea Party extremism, it’s also what we need from the House leader. Tea Party extremism is primarily responsible for October’s shutdown, and other obstructionism. Boehner himself played no small role in all of that.

He also believes that these groups are pushing Republicans into places they don’t want to be. To him, and many others, they’ve lost credibility. According to a partner at public affairs organization Qorvis Communications, Boehner is basically telling the Tea Party that he’s no longer afraid of them.

The USA is now a banana republic.

In economics, a banana republic is a country operated as a commercial enterprise for private profit, effected by a collusion between the state and favored monopolies, in which the profit derived from the private exploitation of public lands is private property, while debts incurred are thereby a public responsibility.
