If we had a presidential leader, instead of a playboy President he could rally Congress to get something done. Obama is too busy running around the country, and partying to lead.

The best thing congress can do now is take another month long break. They need to go home and explain to their constituents that this is all somebody else's fault.

Well this Congress has achieved at least one feather to their backward thinking, do nothing, least productive hat:

Officials have already declared this first session of the 113th Congress the least productive ever.

History rarely remembers Senators and Congressmen. Harry pelosi will be remembered.

Obama spends $600 million on rail projects that benefit private companies...

To-do list?

Gotta be kidding. The Republicans have been
almost totally committed to doing nothing
for the last five years except sabotage
and won't be willing to get anything done
before the end of this year. Another 300
silent filibusters next year?

Forget it.

Keep in mind that Republicans don't get
elected to Congress do get anything done.
They get elected to Congress to keep the
Democrats from doing anything.

Maybe Darrell Issa will come up with
a new Democratic "scandal" to investigate.
Other than that.......zilch.

There's no time to figure out the lug and lug wrench system. Gonna have to let that square wheel keep a wearin' out on the one side. Gotta figure a bright new ponzi dollar scheme and keep up on the insider trading. Gee, I almost forgot the most important thing, which would be to keep on s-----ng on the electoriate.

What differnce does it make anyway?
Obama bombs countries without Congressional approval.
He ignores laws he doesn't want to implement and makes up laws that Congress hasn't gotten around to implementing yet.

Congress is doing the American people a favor by blocking the nightmare in chiefs agenda anyway they can. Unfortunately the little dictator continues to run amok via executive orders. I applaud Congress for looking out for us. And if the democraps don't like it, Too Bad!!

What inaction?

The Republicans in the House have repealed the
Affordable Care Act 46 times.

Now that's action.

They have another six "workin" days in this
year to do it again.

God, I'll bet their constituents are proud
of them.

Your damn right we are proud of all those we sent to Washington DC to fight for our country, it's constitution and for us as individuals. Let's see what you have in that pea brain pookie. Get a 666 tat on your forehead with an X in the middle.

Every time the Republicans repeal the ACA applause goes up, and more Americans leave the Democrat party.
