Huh?But, you really make me laugh when you always somehow blame the Republicans. Last time I checked, the Democrats are in control and have been in control in both the House and the Senate.
How many times have the Democrats been blocked in the Senate because they can't get required 60 votes only achieved if ALL D's and Liberman vote for vs all the Republicans against.
It was the R's that wasted days insisting on a 1700's provision to read out load all amendments since at that time there were no typewriters much less computers.
R's have admitted they will block anything the D's propose for political purpose to make Obama look bad for the ignorant that will blame Obama for what he can not control
On HAMP in two Congressional hearings D's very upset with servicers and powerless to enforce HAMP. R's say HAMP is a waste of money get the homeowners out and new ones in. Their solution is tax cuts for the rich.
I also consider myself an independant, and use to be a conservative R but not what they are doing today.
D's do not control the Senate only can tie IF all stick together (they don't) against usually 100% R opposition for anything other than Insurance companies, big business and the wealthy.
Since the don't control the Senate their majority in the House is meaningless. It is the Senate that is the problem vs the just say no R's on so many issues that help Main Street.
