Big Government’s Wynton Hall weighs in with a story that provides the fact to the infrequent whiners that leave comments blaming the Republican led Congress for not helping Obama move his failed agenda, now you have it. Whine no more!
The despicable obstreperous recalcitrant Senate Majority Leader is sitting on 24 jobs bills submitted by the U.S. House of representatives.

Boehner’s card, says Nathan Gonzales of the Rothenberg Political Report, may presage a broader electoral strategy:
“If they can demonstrate what they are for, they can rebut Obama’s charge that they are ‘obstructionists’ who aren’t for anything,” Gonzales said. “But we have to see to what extent Republicans are willing and able to follow this playbook.”
All 242 House Republicans have been urged by leadership to flash these cards at Washington news conferences as well as town-hall meetings and campaign events back home.
For his part, Sen. Reid has met Speaker Boehner’s jobs challenge with derision:
