At the weekly press conference with Republican leaders Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) discussed the 352 bills 98% which passed with bipartisan support in the House that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refuses to bring up for a vote
The President is fond of referring to the House as the Do-Nothing Congress. But we have 352 reasons why its a Do-Nothing Senate.
352 bills are sitting on Harry Reids desk, awaiting action.
98% of them passed with bipartisan support. Republicans and Democrats working together to pass legislation.
50% of the bills passed unanimously, with no opposition.
70% of the bills passed with 2/3rds support in the House.
And over 55 bills were introduced by Democrats.

Every Republican needs to continuously beat this like a drum. They should have press conferences to say this, and only this, and walk away.
Harry The Reid leans so far forward that he can’t see them
Yes, every damn day with the current number and a countdown on how many days it has been since the oldest one was passed out of the U.S. House.
Yes, but until the MSM starts asking about and injecting this into the conversation every time a pundit or dem talks about the do-nothing congress, it still won’t make much difference.
depending on what’s in those bills, that may be the best place for them. (and us.)
Reid is so progressive, his head has progressed up his backside.
Have a banner with a number on it...the number of days since the democrat Senate has passed a budget.
They have to have the token talking head Republican on these shows. It’s time for us to march in lockstep and have some of the same “iron discipline” Lenin put into the democrat party. The public needs the visceral punch in the gut five second soundbyte.
“The democrat Senate has been sitting on 352 bipartisan bills passed by the House. The democrat Senate has not passed a budget in X days. We invite Harry Reid to do his job.”
No matter what question is asked, no matter what rabbit hole the talking heads want to go down, every show, every question, every Republican says exactly the same thing. Stay focused, stay on message, and for God’s sake, make them play on OUR home field.
Too busy overseeing primary dirty tricks against T.E.A. Party candidates.
Wasn’t it like 1300 days before the senate passed a budget?
Many Years!! ..another example of Obama ignoring the rule of law!
I’m calling her on this one. The House didn’t pass but 83 pieces of legislation this Congress. Unless Reid has a 4 year backlong.
The Dems NEED a Do Nothing Congress. Harry Reid is just doing Obama’s bidding.
Harry can’t read or write. He is an imbecile.
Waterboard the a-hat.
“Reince Priebus - AWOL Again.”
He has brought this up. But he is just one of only a few voices in the wilderness.
My thoughts exactly...we have enough laws on the books already..passing bills is just the way congress keeps its job...I propose 1 full year that congress cannot be in session and can do no more harm. If it makes us safer from the government, cut government in half each year until it seems like we need them. Dump every one employed in an alphabet bureaucracy’s, like EPA, ATF, ADA, IRS, and all others. American and Americans lived fine without them before, we can do it again...most of those dam things were given us by republican admins.
And no transferring responsibility of the details to the bureaucracy.
