The do nothing Congress

The truth instead of Rush induced fiction.

“The strategy of being obstructionist can work or fail ... and so far it's working for us." —Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott, R-Miss. Roll Call, April 18

These people are so low on the food chain they even brag about causing problems.
In all, Senate Republicans have launched 43 filibusters in the first seven months of the Congress, on a pace to triple the previous record. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has brazenly announced that every “controversial measure” will face a filibuster in the Senate, trampling majority rule to require 60 votes to cut off the filibuster. No longer can reforms be passed on a clean up-or-down majority vote in the Senate.
Conservatives openly gloat about the strategy. As conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer put it on Fox News, “I think this will give the Republican the one opening they are going to have in 2008. Everything is running against the Republicans, but I think they have a chance if they argue that the Democrats have been in charge and they are the do-nothing Congress”.
