Yes. The Democratic Party controlled Senate waited until after midnight on New Years eve to finally get around to passing any sort of bill. You do understand that the House has passed several bills addressing this over the last few months, right?
So did the senate.
No they didn't. Not one. A fact I'm sure whatever media you watch failed repeatedly to mention while falling over themselves to tell you about how the House Republicans were dragging their feet.
Lets face it, Congress, & the House especially, is the least effective branch of Government.
The issue in this case has nothing to do with effectiveness.
I doubt Boehner keeps his job Friday.
That's quite possible, but it certainly wont have anything to do with him failing to give the Democrats a better deal.
