    “Yes, there have been a couple of stumbles,” John Boehner acknowledged Tuesday.

    The House speaker had spoken with dry understatement.

    What has happened since Republicans took full control of Congress three weeks ago has been less a stumble than a pratfall involving the legislative equivalent of a banana peel, flailing arms, an upended bookcase, torn drapes and a slide across a laden banquet table into a wedding cake.

    Well, it's easy to be critical of people who are trying to do something when you dont have to make good. Please name one thing the GOP has done since they have had the majority.

    "Please name one thing the GOP has done since they have had the majority."

    I have often asked for one good thing the Republicans have done - period.

    Its no accident that they're called the Do Nothings but I'm sure they'll get busy on the "issues" they deem important - raising taxes on the middle class and taking basic rights away from Americans.

    Jobs? Infrastructure? Education? Not so much.

    Instead of hiding behind childish name calling, how about you address the OP?

    I realize that you would have no way of knowing this but the US government has three branches and two major parties.

    Only one of those items is a legitimate Government interest, and even then only in a limited fashion.

    The failed Republican Congress is incapable of getting a consensus in their own party let alone with the Democrats

    As a result, they will be relegated to passing Kill Obamacare, ban abortion, stop all welfare, repeal environmental laws that have no chance of becoming law but will pander to their base

    They will fritter away the two years they have in charge and accomplish nothing


    Worst Congress ever
