Hillary Clinton Says Republicans Have Created A ‘Paralyzed’ Congress

http://fortune.com/2016/06/27/hillary-clinton-republicans-congress/

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton chastised Republican lawmakers on Sunday for a “paralyzed” Congress, saying they’ve fueled populist anger by refusing to “do their job.”

Clinton ticked off a list of items that GOP congressional leaders have refused to schedule for a vote. They include a proposed immigration overhaul, holding confirmation hearings to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, and strengthening background checks and banning firearms sales to people on the government no-fly list.

Her remarks come as voter unrest has fueled the outsider candidacies of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, as well as her Democratic primary opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Leaders in Congress refuse to act on a wide range of issues that really matter to American working families,” Clinton said during an address to the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis.

To vote.

3. One of their goals is to make government appear dysfunctional and incompetent.

If we only see the bad and never recognize the good, we fall into the trap they have set.

The more Democrats sit at home in discouragement or apathy, the more elections the Republicans win. Since their achievements don't serve us, the more reinforcing it is for us to "see" how government fails to serve us. And they win again!
