    Dingy Harry “works from home” - where he belongs! The GOP Senate leadership is doing what has been missing since Democrats took over the Senate – allowing open debate and votes on bills. Votes when individual Senators have to stand up and show exactly where they stand.


    Beside articles like these, one can only visit govtrack.us to obtain this heartening information. Okay, so we might not agree with some of the bills and who is voting for what, BUT AT LEAST IT'S OPEN TO SCRUTINY!

    The Senate Finally Gets Down to Business


    But not without snags. Guess it's been so long since they had to do what they were sent to Washington to do, they kinda forgot what it's all about.


    And it's not going to get any easier. The House is passing lots of stuff they promised when running for office. So is the Senate. But now that Dingy Harry's not covering for him anymore, Obama's gonna have to suck it up.

    Anything to show Obama as the empty suit he is. He may not be as much of a dingbat as either Reid or Pelosi but he's still qualifies as lunatic left. Although it is amazing that there were enough halfwits to elect him much less reelect him.

    What the Senate has done in its first weeks has been crazy! A real whirlwind of productivity!

    They ahve no money to invest. They had to make budget cuts and raise taxes on the rich just to make obama's free 2 year college plan applicable. We can't even pass a jobs bill without cutting else where. Look, the days of the stimulous are not a reality anymore. We can't spend even a fraction of that money without taking from elsewhere. The only way to create jobs and reveue to do these things is to repel legislation that is preventing these things, and pass tax incentives, which is an indirect investment, these don't cost a thing right now. That's what we are down to.

    Thank you Obama you stupid fuck.

    OK, they returned to their superiority in the Senate, now they can impeach Obama! But it seems that they will be powerless against him as always. And even more against Hillary if she will get her way.

    Can anyone point to a single piece of legislation to come from the failed Republican Congress?
