Boehner/McConnell “most unproductive congress in history”

Thank You Boehner and McConnell

 

Boehner and McConnell “most unproductive congress in history”Americans have rated their congressmen and senators as “unfavorable”, with ratings as low as 20%. Here are some statistics that justify their opinions.

The 112th congress is waning. It will have the distinction of wearing the label of “most unproductive congress in history”.

The 80th congress, 1947-1948, was labeled by President Harry Truman the “Do-Nothing Congress”. They passed 906 bills.

During the 104th congress, 1995-1996, 333 bills became law, and was shamed with the label as the previously most unproductive.

President Obama has signed 219 bills into law in the past two years. There are 20 bills waiting his signature, which would make a total of 239, the fewest in history.

Truly significant legislation such as the Violence Against Women Act has been consistently blocked. House Republicans have held 30 votes to repeal “Obamacare”, although they know it would never pass in the Senate.

To call the 112th congress “obstructionist” is being too kind. House Republicans refuse to do their jobs. They are interested in their own agenda, and part of that is running for re-election.

I call for the resignation of John Boehner. As Speaker of the House, his main function is to facilitate the passage of important and meaningful legislation. If he has not performed his duties effectively, he should step down. I’m sure we could find someone to do the job.

If all this doesn’t give definitive proof that our government is broken, what will? Mr. Obama must be the most frustrated President in history.

    Regrettably, the 112th congress is an accurate reflection of their constituency.

    Wow, great job on a hatchet attack. You do realize, that the senate is controlled by reid a democrat who has refused to vote on any bills from the house. You do realize that Obama other than raising taxes has done nothing to limit spending….Go back to school and learn about our constitution before writing again….
