    Default Do Nothing Congress: Its McConnell and the Republicans

    Throw the lying snowflake selfish fool crook out and lets get back to work to really make America great again.

    House Democrats have passed nearly 400 bills. Trump and Republicans are ignoring them.Legislative paralysis gripped Capitol Hill well before impeachment started.


    For months, President Donald Trump has fired off tweet missives accusing House Democrats of “getting nothing done in Congress,” and being consumed with impeachment.


    Trump may want to look to the Republican-controlled Senate instead. Democrats in the House have been passing bills at a rapid clip; as of November 15, the House has passed nearly 400 bills, not including resolutions. But the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee estimates 80 percent of those bill have hit a snag in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is prioritizing confirming judges over passing bills.

    Much of this agenda is sitting in the Senate. There have been a few things House Democrats and Senate Republicans have agreed on: disaster relief aid, reopening the government after the shutdown, the resolution to end US involvement in the Yemen war, a bill to protect public lands, and a resolution disapproving of Trump’s use of emergency powers.


    But on major policy issues — like health care and infrastructure, or even bipartisan ones like net neutrality, the Equal Pay Act, or even a simple reauthorization of the longstanding Violence Against Women Act — Democrats’ bills are continuing to languish in the Senate. House Democrats are expecting to take up H.R.3, a major health care bill to lower the cost of prescription drugs, before the Christmas break. Although we’re not going to list all 400 bills for brevity’s sake, here’s a list of major bills and resolutions the House has passed so far.

    Facts are simple and facts are straight. Facts are lazy and facts are late. Facts all come with points of view. Facts don't do what I want them to. Facts just twist the truth around. Facts are living turned inside out. Facts are getting the best of them. Facts are nothing on the face of things. Facts don't stain the furniture. Facts go out and slam the door. Facts are written all over your face. Facts continue to change their shape.

    But I'm willing to be proven wrong. Exactly how much of "this agenda" is sitting in the Senate and how many are sitting in the House? How much is "much" in the context of this article?

    This is your big chance Back. Don't fuck it up by deflecting or telling me to do my own research on the vague information you presented as fact.

    You can do it! I believe in you buddy!

    Yeah, no. You are more than welcome to refute the facts outlined the article but thats a secondary point.

    Can you guess what the original point of my posting this is?

    Lol Vox

    Even the “highlights” they choose to focus on we see roughly 50% deal directly with Trump in some manner and roughly the other 50% are is meaningless virtue signaling. Sounds about right.

    PS: stop reading Vox, although it really explains your brainwashing.

    "Many" is a broad term and is meaningless in that context without additional information.

    You didn't present any facts, because the info they gave was intentionally vague because they know they can count on morons like you to run with it for them without question, like a good NPC.

    Can you guess what the original point of my posting this is?
    Yes. The original point of you posting this was to remind us that you're really stupid and gullible and will swallow anything the media feeds you as long as the theme is Orange Man Bad.

    You're still missing the point.

    Trump lied about Democrats in Congress.

    Look at yourself and Tgo, and every other rapid Trump cultist who refuse to believe reality and instead cling to the lies of the false leader as sacred.

    Lol at thinking the "House Resolution 271 — Condemning the Trump Administration’s Legal Campaign to Take Away Americans’ Health Care" counts as "passing legislation", this is of course after the Vox article you slurped up said there were oh so many bills passed that weren't resolutions yet still felt the need to include this resolution.

    And again:

    Lol Vox

    Lol Back

    Several people were murdered today in Britain in a terrorist attack, Back. Shouldn't you be condemning that? Or are you holding out it was somehow a white supremacist attack before you condemn since you know Islamic terrorism apparently isn't a problem in the world anymore?
