    The last 4 years congress has broken records for the filibuster and redefined "obstructionism". However, I've seen some debate on whether having a productive congress is actually a good thing or not.

    So, better to have a gridlocked congress or a productive one thats ruled by the opposition?

    What's their approval, 12%? Could be bad.

    The Pubs won't vote for the type of Jobs Act they always did...a disgrace.

    "No compromise, Un-American Tea Party GOP" (TIME).

    Assume the position, "Our only goal is a one term Obama" a-holes.

    Quit lying. It's getting old.

    Where's the part about Republicans controlling both houses, the Supreme Court and the presidency for 6 years? You know, when Republicans worked to destroy the country. They did more than al Qaeda.

    They produced the most important social (PUB) health reform ever, and stopped the meltdown in its tracks, and financial reform- if Pubs would allow implementation. And they had 60 votes for 24 days in session. Change the channel. Passing the Jobs act would have produed 2% more growth and 1% UE- can't have that!
