GOP control of Congress - how are they doing, compared to Democrats?


As Trump continues to confound GOP bosses - what have the GOP leaders done to show the voters How They will fix things with Control of Congress?

Last November the voters of America gave the Republicans a resounding victory and Obama a deafening defeat when control of the House and Senate fell into GOP hands for the first time since the election of Barack Obama in 2008.

Just over halfway into their first year in control of both Houses of Congress, a situation last seen when the Democrats controlled both the House and Senate during the first two years of the Obama presidency, what is the result?

Nothing if one looked at the press stories.  Nothing if one listened to Obama, but then he blames the Republicans for everything all the time.  If you listen to Hillary Clinton she says they have been ruthlessly investigating her and Bill and the Foundation as part of their ongoing paranoia and hatred of the Clintons.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says the Republicans continue to block everything Obama tries to do which of course ignores the few times the president and congress have agreed on anything.

Curiously, no Republican candidate seems to be praising the leadership of the GOP, nor the Speaker of the House John Boehner or Majority Leader of the Senate Mitch McConnell for all they have done since taking over the Capitol.

Perhaps the fact Trump can give honest and candid assessments of everyone mired in the political establishment of our nation's capitol, whether Democrat, Republican or news media, is what makes him so popular.

As the people seem to be saying with their support of Trump, maybe it is time to thrown them all out.
