    Senators serve 6 year terms and most holding those offices are no more productive than the clowns in the House. As a matter of fact they are much worse. Reid and company haven't passed a budget in over 900 days. If we really wanted to reform DC we would limit the legislative calendar to three weeks. After four weeks the Senate and House office buildings are locked up and the political elites are told to go home and live with their constituents.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    Please explain how Obama's policies have been an utter failure when Congress refuses to implement them.
    Yeah and the stealfromus bills, QE 1 and 2, the drilling ban. Oh, wait, those did get implemented.

    Good God!! Unbelievable that someone holding such an important office thinks that way. Gads, are we in trouble.

    This is another way of her saying, "Congress won't do the right thing because they're too worried about being re-elected." Now THAT would have been a statement!
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Cant blame them for their constituents insisting on sending them back over and over. My problem is with the two year repeat election cycles.
