As humorous as it is sometimes watching the republicans fight amongst themselves, it gets in the way of them doing meaningful work that the voters back home sent them do DC for. The constant infighting and delaying tactics that result are not good for the country.

Let's hope the party leadership gets their ducks in a row and gets back to improving our situation as a whole, and not pursuing the same lame delaying tactics they employed in the vain attempt to stop the presidents reelection.

The 112th congress under the returning speaker is now the true holder of the "do nothing congress" label ... if the 113th brakes that record, we are all screwed.

Boehner cannot lead the Tea Baggers, and he cannot work with the President. Not much is going to get done. We need a Democratic tsunami in 2014. We need more conservatives explaining the goodness of illegitimate rape, working to layoff more govt workers, and to work against immigration reform.

They agreed to not say rape, too. A freshman did and was cuffed upside the head and was on TV explaining and apologizing, too. 'No rape, check! My bill requiring trans vaginal ultrasounds is not about rape, it's about life'. Remember keystone kops

Luntz was there, 'small government' is out, efficient government is in, or government that works. How they can claim they are for govt that works and still obstruct and filibuster is beyond me.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
