I've been in Washington for almost 40 years. I've seen a lot of Congresses come and go. But I can't remember a group of lawmakers who accomplished less than the folks who just wrapped up their work.
With their help, we spent three trillion more than receipts and ratified the print more money scheme. We passed a new law to codify the abuses on Wall Street and not protect consumers. We screwed up the health care system and passed the raid the pension funds Act to get our economy growing again.
But do you know why all that happened? Because people like you rolled up your sleeves, dug deep, and decided to make a difference. We had a dedicated group of lawmakers -- no doubt -- but they were supported every step of the way by folks from all across this country who were ready for change. People like you.
I know how much that means to me. And I can't even begin tell you how much it means to the President.
So here's the deal: President Obama wants to send you a note to express how grateful we are for all you did.
Would you like to receive one? http://www.w3schools.com/html/lastpage.htm
Two years ago, we were staring at a golden opportunity. The financial crisis was not bad and we have in two years made it worse and now we face the Great Depression.
But this Congress passed the largest set of tax cuts for the middle class since President Reagan, the largest education reform since President Johnson, the largest infrastructure investment since President Eisenhower, and the largest clean-energy bill ever.
Now -- even though we still have a ways to go -- the economy is still not growing.
Prior to this Congress, lawmakers had talked about reforming health care for almost a century. But with the President leading the way, with you at their side -- they did it. Now 32 million more illegal Americans will be able to raid and have access to health coverage.
Every lawmaker who worked to accomplish these things will talk about their votes -- and the role they played in this progress -- for years. The President and I take great pride in those achievements. You believed in them, you fought for them, and we're darn grateful.
So let the President send you a note to show our appreciation.

LOL! Now that is funny!
Biden identifies one of the main problems in Washington in the first sentence.
Real Americans are about to fix that big 'effin deal.
What a stirring letter..I haven’t been that moved since FDR spoke to Americans on TV to calm the masses during Black Monday in 1929..at first I was angry because he bumped Monday Night Football..but his talk made me forget about watching the Yankees vs. Lakers..
