Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has ignored the legislation, even though much of it passed the House with key support from Democrats The Blaze reported.

“We are calling on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to get off his self-constructed throne, roll up his sleeves and get back to work.” Blackburn said in a post she co-wrote Thursday with U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., for HerBlog. “Real lives, a real economy, and a true American recovery hang in the balance.”

The bills would tackle problems associated with job creation, health care, energy production and a host of other issues, according to an article on

MSNBC, CNN and other media outlets have called this session the “Do-nothing Congress,” but a “Do-nothing Senate” is more accurate.
