We are witnessing the worst Congress in history, because Republicans are intentionally sabotaging America in hopes of seizing power. With so many pressing needs facing our nation, House Republicans adjourned and went on vacation, despite objections from House and Senate Democrats, leaving their work undone. This Congress is most notable for what they didn’t do, not what they did, although what they did was horrific in it’s own right.

Farm Bill — damned if they do, damned if they don't
Postal Service — Ben Franklin is rolling in his grave over this. Not likely to be dealt with this year? What on earth are they waiting for? It won't go away!
Cybersecurity — And Jabber Jowls McConnell wants to add a provision to repeal the ACA? Enough of the repeal of the ACA! Get on with the business of governing.
VAWA — This should have been an automatic renewal without all the Republican/Teabagger theatrics. And they say there is no war on women?!
Russia — For the US to be delaying because of Russia's human rights record is a little silly. Russia has problems, absolutely. But so does the US — just look at what's going on courtesy of the GOP.
The Republican/Teabagger House leadership would rather waste time with 33 votes to repeal the ACA, numerous discussions about abortion and contraception, and lord knows what other trivial matters rather than getting down to the important business of running the country and approving bills like the AJA that would get people working and stimulating the economy.
A useless, highly paid, overly respected do-nothing Congress. I saw Steve LaTourette (R) Ohio, as he discussed the reasons for his resignation from Congress. Everyone should watch or read that information. The republican party is in a decline but being over run by the extremist from T-party. As their primary agenda is No Government is small enough, people that wish to end this extremism that this tearing this country apart, must get out and VOTE.
A Republican congressman who's retiring in frustration over political gridlock says he hopes the institution doesn't have to hit "rock bottom" before people learn to work together.
Ohio's Steven LaTourette tells MSNBC it's more difficult for a reasonable person to get re-elected to Congress because "the red districts are turning redder and the blue districts are turning bluer."

Thanks Tom for the posting. Yep a "do nothing Congress" but to hear the Repubs tell it, it's a "do nothing administration". Things have got to change in November. Voted Democratic, Please!!! Read and noted.

I sincerely hope that people remember all that could have been accomplished by the 112th congress if they had not chosen to obstruct and attempt to subvert everything President Obama tried to accomplish. I never voted for these chuckleheads from my State to begin with but I only have one vote so I'm hoping that those that did elect them have learned a lesson and don't repeat the same mistake.

Until the Democrat and Republican cheerleaders such s ourselves get over it and insist on a compromise in Congress it will never happen. We here are just as bad as they who we sent to washington. Starting with Harry reid you can find as many Dems who wanted out of DC as reps. This is not a single party fault as the elction oriented people would have us believe.
The message needs to be sent and the way to send it is to vote every incumbent out of office and try like hell to get independents in their place.

The GOP should reimburse us for living off the public dole for the past 4 years....Actually for the past 10. As their employers, I think we have every right to a reimbursal for a do-nothing Congress.

I think we ARE helping the country. We're involved, we're informed, we're signing petitions, we're protesting and we're contacting our representatives. That's a whole lot more than our game-playing, paycheck-collecting Congress is doing. If anyone needs to grow up, they do!
