Good Riddance to the 112th Congress with It’s Toxic Partisan Bickering

All I can say is good riddance to the 112th Congress, the worst in decades. Too bad people like Tea Party wingnut Michele Bachmann wasn’t kicked out of office.

Ezra Klein: “What’s the record of the 112th Congress? Well, it almost shut down the government and almost breached the debt ceiling. It almost went over the fiscal cliff (which it had designed in the first place). It cut a trillion dollars of discretionary spending in the Budget Control Act and scheduled another trillion in spending cuts through an automatic sequester, which everyone agrees is terrible policy. It achieved nothing of note on housing, energy, stimulus, immigration, guns, tax reform, infrastructure, climate change or, really, anything. It’s hard to identify a single significant problem that existed prior to the 112th Congress that was in any way improved by its two years of rule.”

This all went down at his office in the Longworth House Office building in Washington D.C. ABC News reports U. S. Capitol Police public information officer Shennell Antrobus confirmed: “three females arrested for lewd and indecent acts in the Speaker’s Longworth office. Demonstrators disbursed that area.” The group was protesting potential budget cuts to AIDS programs. CLICK HERE to view photograph.

Politico:  Jolted by concerns over the wave of Medicare-themed Democratic attacks sparked by Paul Ryan’s vice presidential nomination, House Speaker John Boehner held a Tuesday evening conference call aimed at soothing jittery Republican members.

Um, this shows that the Democrats are being successful at defining Mitt Romney and his sidekick Paul Ryan as caring more about the rich at the expense of senior citizens, the middle class and the poor. Sarah Palin should be calling on Mitt Romney to dump Paul Ryan.
