Interestingly, the House's strategy to avoid getting primaried without completely gumming up Washington for the next two years is to just say "@#%^ this sh*t" and make the Senate do all the work. Let them take all the blame.
After the 50th time they've passed a budget bill to the Senate and had Harry Reid simply ignore it and not put it on the schedule for a vote, what do you expect them to do? At some point, you kinda have to point to the other guy and ask "Ok. If you don't like my ideas, what ideas do you have?".
First it was the taxes, now it's the debt ceiling. What's next, immigration reform?
It's pretty much anything of consequence. The hold up in our congress is not in the House. It's in the Senate. The Dems have realized that any solution they propose will cost them votes by moderates or votes by liberals, so they've chosen to just not do anything at all. By not voting they aren't held to any position on anything. Failing to govern has become their best course of action.
This frees up the House to pander incessantly to the base back home by creating additional bills to repeal Obamacare, none of which will go anywhere.
If those were the only bills not going anywhere in the Senate, you'd have a point.
