But the number of legislative disputes that they have failed to resolve while they have been failing to craft a budget deal is equally striking. They include reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, renewing a sweeping farm bill and reforming the U.S. Postal Service.
Congresss inability to solve even the stuff that used to be considered routine in Washington portends trouble for work on broader legislative initiatives like immigration reform or new gun control laws next year, when Republicans will continue to have solid control of the House and the Democrats majority in the Senate will expand by two seats.

The GOP has proven that it is incapable of dealing with anything.
It can defend nothing, it stands for nothing, and it is incapable of prevailing in even a single negotiation about anything at all.
John Boehner, in particular, is the most ineffective and loathsome politician that I have ever seen in my entire life.
He has provided no one a single reason to vote GOP.
ever notice how the weeper of the house never mentions the incredible $ wasted by the gubmint, & the missing senate budgets since obama took office. why should believe that the weeper is NOT on obama’s team?
...and these multiple-goof-offs get paid handsomely for this. Disgusting.
The media measures the productivity of the congress by the number of new laws past during their term.
I would like to see an permanent committee formed whose sole purpose would be the elimination of old laws that are no longer needed or are counterproductive.
The Senate is a potted plant.
I recommend a Congress that sits for only two weeks per year, no staff, and a salary of $1.
