The tea party and the Republican Party are responsible for the lack of action by Congress. They have made statements that they will do everything possible to see that President Barack Obama fails.
This has been going on since the 2010 election. The House refuses to pass anything beneficial to the citizens of this country, but chases scandals that have already been beat to death. They'll beat a dead horse forever. They've repeatedly tried to overturn the Affordable Care Act, knowing that it has to pass the Senate and get the president's signature. Talk about spitting into the wind. The tea party has no idea how government works, as seen by their contentions and actions.
Then we have the Benghazi issue that's been beaten to death too. All in all, the Republican Party lacks prudence or passion in serving the people by chasing issues that have been settled.
They rarely look at the last administration that put us in the predicament we're in -- Iraq, economic disaster, banking atrocities, Wall Street thugs and a party that can't seem to get anything right. The Republican Party has always been a party of criminal minds, from McCarthy to Nixon to Reagan to George W. Bush.
Get smart, people. They're not there for you by any means. They're there for the big money, not the workers.
