Do Nothing House Passed More Than 350 Bills That Sit on Harry Reidís Desk
The Blaze ^ | 8-1-2014 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 08/03/2014 6:51:41 PM PDT by Citizen Zed

Blackburn told TheBlaze that 356 bills made it through the House and are languishing in the Senate.

Additionally, according to the congresswoman, 98 percent of those bills were passed with bipartisan support. She also pointed out that 200 of the bills were passed in the House with unanimous support from the entire chamber and more than 100 were passed with 75% support of House Democrats.

To make her point that the House is working, but the Senate is where the obstruction exists, Blackburn printed all of the bills that the House has passed and stacked them on a desk with a Harry Reid nameplate.  She took a photo standing next to the pile of bills and posted it on her Twitter account.

What’s important is to NEVER MAKE this case. What’s important is to always get caught up in defending one’s self against specious playground “racist” and “homophobe” charges.

The GOP is so damned incompetent.

“Blackburn told TheBlaze that 356 bills made it through the House and are languishing in the Senate.”

333 or 356?

Needed for years now. Going to my elist.

Wot is going on?

Walked past Daddy’s MSNBC the other night and some twerp subbing for madcow (actually Dad hasn’t watched so much MSLSD last few months-so he tried to make up by a few minutes here)
explaining ‘we usually mean by do-nothing Congress the Republican-led House, but Congress is a bicameral body and that includes the Senate and I almost stopped to watch and maybe I saw Rep Blackburn’s face (maybe a still).

I DID see her getting interviewed around 10AM I think on that network and maybe it was this.

Wot is going on?

Rep. Blackburn discourages those of us not in her district to contact our own Rep.
In California? Talk about an exercise in frustration.

Are there any Congresspersons who understand that what each one of them does, or does not do affects the entire country?

There has got to be an easy way to print out that list of Bills stuck in the Senate, ao we can shove them down the throats of the morons with the big mouths.

You know, Name of each Bill, Bill number, date sent to the Senate etc?
I would probably take less than 5 minutes to do so with the proper access, or a link to legislative House action records...

A PDF of that list would be lovely.

I’m next door to TN but will contact my critter, Mo Brooks, and see IF he can come up with such a list.
