5. Thanks for bringing this. From the link:

In July of 2013, I reported on the Double-Down-Do-Nothings for PoliticusUSA, “You might have thought the 112th Congress’ historic low of 23 legislative items passed at this same last year was the epic fail, but you’ll have to revise that. This 113th Congress has only passed 15 legislative items at the 6 month mark.” None of the 15 legislative items were of any significance, either.

Oh, that was harsh. But then he gets right down to it:

On January first, House Republican leadership unveiled the new House work calendar revealing that the House would only be in session for 97 days prior to Election Day and 112 days through the end of the year. That’s a Do-Noting-Double-Down.

As Jason Easley pointed out earlier today, this lawsuit is all about impeachment proceedings against President Obama. Speaker Boehner denies this, but this is how the Clinton impeachment started. Boehner claims he’s doing this to keep Obama from destroying the integrity of the office, but that claim is laughable given how Republicans rolled out the red carpet for Bush’s gross expansion of executive branch power. It’s okay when other presidents do it, but it’s not okay when Obama does it.


Despicable Kochroaches, the whole bunch of them!
