What has the least productive House of Representatives in history actually done?


Someone needs to learn the ‘culture of work’

President Obama pointed out last week that the 113th Congress will be the least productive in recorded history.

Romney-Ryan-12So while it accomplished almost nothing, the Republican Congress has made clear that it would like the federal government to do a lot less to help the working people, the uninsured, the undocumented and the unemployed while doing more to help the richest.

What explains this kind of behavior?

We have got this tailspin of culture, in House Republicans in particular, of men not working and just not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.

So there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.
