In a parallel universe based on honesty and achievement, would our present Congress have a completely different look? Every Republican candidate from the tea party and incumbents ran on jobs and the failings of the Obama stimulus. The Obama stimulus Was modestly successful.

And our energy conservation efforts are still woefully difficient.
The Oil and Gas Industry propoganda machine strikes fast, hard and repeatedly to get what it wants.
Got to get those votes.
