Boehner & GOP Refusing To Work?

* The Republican control of the House of Representatives has been a huge disaster. With John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and the Tea Party Republicans refusing to cooperate with the President, they've brought the entire country to a halt. The House Republicans are spoiled children that cry every single time someone mentions ending tax cuts for millionaires as the only solution to our fiscal problems.  Waaaaa!  Waaaa!  Waaaa!  While the Republicans have their fundraisers on private golf courses with their millionaire friends, travel to resorts for "conferences" with deep-pocket contributors, Americans wait, and wait, and wait, for the Republicans to get down to work.

The record of the Boehner Speakership has been one of a decrease in scheduled work days, a reduced number of bills passed and fewer actually becoming law. Boehner and his Republican bunch have done nothing.  Will Boehner, his Tea Party Republicans, and Mitch McConnell continue to sit on their rear ends until the next midterm election, or will they step up and put the country first, instead of their political party?  If past behavior is a predictor of one's future behavior, we know how this will end.
