We have a system where the minority leader filibustered his own bill. We have a system where authors of the Veterans Jobs Bill voted to table their own bill because the President spoke out in favor of it. We have a system where the last Congress passed less legislation than any Congress going back to WWII with the entire nation on a wartime footing. We have a system where the government was not able to act to combat the largest recession since the great depression because Republicans wanted to make the President a one term president. In short we have gridlock at historical levels. We have a tyranny of the minority because of a rule developed by that great American Aaron Burr.
For a guy whose party has been in power for the past several years and whose POTUS candidate just won a second term, you sure are a cry baby.
