HOUSTON, April 9 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama sharply criticized what he called the least productive U.S. Congress in modern history on Wednesday in a fund-raising speech that he used to try to energize Democrats to vote in November congressional elections.
Obama blasted Republicans in the U.S. Senate for blocking a Democratic-supported bill earlier in the day aimed at addressing a gap in pay between male and female workers. Republicans argued that pay discrimination is already illegal.
Obama also cited Republicans' refusal to agree to an immigration overhaul and an increase in the minimum wage as examples of what he called obstruction by his political opponents.
"This has become the least productive Congress in modern history, recent memory. And that's by objective measures - just basic activity," Obama said.
Obama was speaking to 60 contributors at the luxurious Houston home of trial lawyer John Eddie Williams. The event raised money for both the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Tickets for the event ranged between $16,200 and $64,800.

His Social Justice agenda is stalled?
I for one do not want an efficient productive government and neither did our founding fathers.

You mean like voting “present”, Barry, you sorry rat?
Our noble President looked somber and reflective at the Fort Hood memorial ceremony. Then he ran to a Democratic Party fund raiser. Wonder if he thought of sharing the proceeds of that fund raiser with the families of the dead and injured soldiers?
Badge of honor.
I love it that the Florida Legislature is in session for only 60 days.
I am so sick of this ahole.
From the mouth of the most destructive president since the beginning of our country.
he will be in Washington State,with patty murray and maria cantwell on the 22nd to look somber and reflective at the Oso landslide,then off to some fundraisers.
Waiting for the RINO response ... and waiting ... and waiting. Obama makes such a clear target and republicans sit on their hands. A bunch of up wusses led by wusses.
Pot calling the kettle?
Congress should blast the most destructive president in American history.
