    My honest vote is all of congress. I think Republicans are blocking anything Obama proposes for the sake of dethroning him in 2012. Democrats, on the other hand, are inhibiting anything the House comes up because they are trying to save face from the embarrassing mid-term election results.

    Obama, I think, is the only branch of government that is making a genuine effort to fix the economy. I think this not because I am democrat, but because it wouldn't make any sense politically for him not to try. His re-election largely depends on a stable economy.

    Lets not forget the corporate influence. Big corps are making good money just the way things are.
    And they all do want cheaper labor rates.
    Lets not forget who controls congress.

    Congress can do whatever it wants, but if Reid won't even bring it up for debate, how's that the fault of congress?
    Don't misunderstand, I do think congress is messed up, but the senate isn't any better, and the guy at the top is worse than the lot of them.

    Sorry, but I have to do it:

    As the OP correctly states, Congress consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

    What exactly has Reid refused to bring up for debate?

    A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, it seems.

    The dems had the one and only trifecta I have ever heard of.

    The WH, and both houses of Congress that they dominated by so much that the reps couldn't even filibuster.

    What did they work on?
    The economy? No
    the mythical job creation? No
    The debt? OH HELL NO! They raised it.

    so what did they work on?
    Obamacare. Millions upon Billions of bribes still had to be passed out to get enough dem votes.

    and you bitches cry that it was the reps?

    fuck you, you lying bunch of fucking cry babies.

    Why do so many nutters pretend that the Democratic party was able to act at will between January 2009 and January 2011?
