"As a 'Die Hard' democrat for the past 50 years, I see we have had a democrat congress for the past 2 years and things have just gotten worse."
Let me remind you that although the Democrats control Congress with a very narrow margin, they cannot pass a single bill without the help of some Republicans because they cannot override a Presidential veto. Vote for Obama and we can correct this situation.
It is true that this congress cannot over-ride a veto. OK. In the past 2 years how many bills has Bush veto-ed? 2? This says they are not doing anything. This congress should be passing bills and sending them to the WH to be vetoed. This would show the people that elected them that they are doing something. Congress did vote to increase their benefits as usual.
