    The House has passed dozens of bills and Reid will not even send them to committee. He simply ignores them, a violation of his responsibility to the voters of America.

    In 2009 and 2010 the Dems simply ignored the Republicans and unilaterally created and voted on bills. The stimulus and Health care come to mind.

    The Dems have REFUSED to even pass a budget, 4 years and no budget. That is a dereliction of duty and a violation of the requirements of the Congress and the President.

    Reid's failure to send the bills to committee is reported as "Republican intransigence."

    This post is so fucking hilarious that I am blown away.

    Conservatives are always accusing black people of being the racist ones instead of the usual reality around us. So get to the back of the bus!

    Liberal idiots lie to the American people so they look good. Reid is the one not doing his job.

    That is the same Senate that Republicans have decided that EVERY bill is subjected to filibuster rules. No longer is 51% needed to pass a bil in the Senate. Republicans decided that the new standard is 60% for a bill to even be voted on

    Reid is just playing the same politics the Republicans are. If you want bills to go for a vote....stop filibustering

    I was just going to say....is this the same Senate in which the minority party has put in place a standing filibuster?

    You mean compromise with the party that has repeatedly stated right up until Nov 2010 that they did not need nor want Republican input or support? Suddenly in 2011 and 2012 they want compromise? Like the way they compromised on the Super Committee? That kind of compromise? Like how the President makes demands, those kind of Compromises?

    By the way? You are both liars the Senate passes legislation all the time. Exactly which party in the Senate has PUBLICLY ANNOUNCED they have no intention of passing a Budget this year?

    A. The bills Reid is ignoring NEVER had a chance- total BS electioneering, just gutting regulations to protect the environment and workers. Pubcrappe for idiot dupes...
    B. You don't remember the gang of six and all the stupid stalling by Pubs- on bills that were compromises, actually Pub bills to start with!?! Idiocy!

    Nobody said the Senate didn't pass legislation.

    But when the minority party is abusing the filibuster the majority party is going to stick it right back to them. That's the game.

    It's you who refuses to see that other side of it but whatev, that's what you do.
