Dems cry ‘obstructionists’ while House passed over 350 bills that sit on Harry Reid’s desk

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed 356 bills that are languishing in the Senate, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. said Friday.

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 desertsun.com.

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

    Harry Reid and family are the most disgusting pieces of flesh on the planet.

    Yeah, and the vast majority of those house bills are on the order of the sixty or so attempts it made to de-fund the Affordable Care Act and shut down the government over refusal to extend the debt ceiling, or are merely the result of procedural votes. Meanwhile, Speaker Boehner, cowering before the Tea Partiers and the most extreme right-wing elements of his party, has refused to let the House take up desperately needed bills on immigration, the farm bill, infrastructure bills, and all sorts of critical business. It’s the Senate, under Harry Reid, that has acted responsibly and as adults, certainly NOT the House.
