Our resident leftists have yet to learn that they should read their links.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The public doesn't understand all the nuances of the legislative process, so what they see "reinforces the perception that Washington can't get anything done," said Nathan Gonzales, political editor of the Rothenberg Report, which follows congressional races.

House Republicans, who have a 241-192 majority, have found it relatively easy to win approval of their major initiatives: repealing the health care law, cutting $61 billion from current-year spending, blocking federal funding for public broadcasting and so on.

The stumbling block has been the Senate. Health care repeal and the $61 billion spending cuts died there, and the effort to defund NPR is also expected to go nowhere.

You mean to say that the Republican majority in the house is actually doing what they said they were going to do, but the Democrook controlled senate is where the road blocks are?

Sounds like the senators are inviting another "shellacking".

"People should understand we do things in baby steps," said Tea Party Express co-founder Sal Russo, of Sacramento, Calif. "We have to remind people that while we just had a historic election, the reality is, we're woefully short of 60 votes in the Senate." Democrats control 53 of the Senate's 100 seats.

<u>But Russo's fighting a world where the public can get instant, nonstop, unfiltered access to Congress and commentary.</u>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Republicans had benefited from that openness during the two-year fight over overhauling the nation's health care system. <u>Procedural delays forced major votes to occur after midnight, and in one case, at dawn on Christmas Eve.</u></span>
