    Instead of whining sarcastically, why don't you actually take the time to see what resolutions have been introduced and where they are?

    Oh, I know learning the truth is difficult for liberals so you'll just follow what your handlers tell you.

    If you do decide to think for yourself, check out GovTrack.us Tracking the U.S. Congress You can even select bills to follow and how to contact members of Congress to give them your opinion.

    Stop whining...it's not my fault

    The failed Republican congress has been unable to pass the most simplest of legislation. It usually involves something called bipartisanship

    Worst Congress ever

    I know it's a waste of time but I will repeat my question - have YOU taken the time to actually research what Congress is doing?

    (I thought not)

    No, you take care of the truly disabled.

    The able bodied bums you see roaming the streets, you offer public jobs or no aid at all.

    NAFTA is an example of what Dems. have done for us. Creating a few jobs and then giving work visas to millions as long as they met the criteria, non white, non American. And they want to give out 5 million more work visa's to non Americans.
    Worried about terrorist crossing our democratic open border? Good. Immigration just handed out 1 million visas to unknown immigrants.
    Then Dems went to the American businesses who used to employ Americans and gave them $5,000. tax breaks to hire anyone but Americans.

    There's a start at what Dems. have done for America.

    Reid keeps getting beat up. Is it drugs? Alcohol?

    Drug test the ones wanting assistance. Remove their handout as soon as you see liquor and strip club charges showing up on their free card, and insist on community service in return for all this food you think they are buying.....

    Now let's deal with the facts considering NAFTA.

    Following diplomatic negotiations dating back to 1990 among the three nations, U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed the agreement in their respective capitals on December 17, 1992.[5] The signed agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation's legislative or parliamentary branch.
    <snip>
    After much consideration and emotional discussion, the House of Representatives passed the North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act on November 17, 1993, 234-200. The agreement's supporters included 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats. The bill passed the Senate on November 20, 1993, 61-38.[6] Senate supporters were 34 Republicans and 27 Democrats. Clinton signed it into law on December 8, 1993; the agreement went into effect on January 1, 1994.[7][8] Clinton, while signing the NAFTA bill, stated that "NAFTA means jobs. American jobs, and good-paying American jobs. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't support this agreement."[

    Factually, NAFTA was a bipartisan blunder.

    If you think for a minute that I am going to defend NEW WORLD ORDER Republicans as being a good alternative to the Democratic GLOBAL INITIATIVE your crazy. I suggest we choose an American that supports America next time....
