    And this will only get worse for the GOP during the next year as the House continues to do nothing and the American people continue to suffer accordingly.

    Don't forget that a "majority" wanted ObamaCare TO DO MORE - not less.

    Problem: You have to have someone credible to run against them.

    That has been the part of the problem in elections over the last several decades. Quality people are not running for office and the incumbents have the money and name recognition to make any newbie think twice about running. Dissatisfaction with incumbents will only take form if the other party or independents can find quality people and money to back them. Without this it is all academic.

    What really needs to happen is for a grass roots party to spring up and run House candidates, candidates who represent the middle class not the extreme sides of the two parties we currently have.

    I suspect teabagger mentality will doom House Republicans.

    I think most of the Tea Baggers will be one hit wonders..

    Repeated attempts to shut down government, default on our debt, devalue our credit rating, anti workers rights.....

    This is called "whistling past the graveyard." The GOP will pick up more seats and the Senate.
