Republican Majority House of Representatives – Least Productive in History

On Face the Nation, Speaker John Boehner was asked about his record of presiding over the least productive and least popular Congress in history.  He responded by defending the obstructionist policies of far-right Republicans and said that Congress should be, “judged on how many laws we repeal.”  If you ever had any doubts, this confirms it — Republicans would rather obstruct than govern.

 

While 2013, 113th Republican Majority House of Representatives is the Least Productive in History, when Democrats had control of the house, senate and presidency in 2008 they got a lot accomplished. Most of the bills passed benefited regular Americans.

That’s because Democrats represents regular Americans and Republicans represents the rich and radical right wing.
