Barack Obama and the Democrats have railed against the “do-nothing Congress” (translation: House Republicans) for nearly six years. So what are the facts? Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS) recently addressed the charge:

Currently, 352 bills that passed the House are awaiting action on Harry Reid’s desk. Of these bills:

- 98% passed with bipartisan support

- Nearly 70% passed with 2/3rds support or more

- Over 50% passed with no opposition at all

- And 55 were introduced by Democrats

And still, Harry Reid refuses to bring them up for a vote.

So, surely the Democrats are confused, right? Of course they're not; when you and your president have zero very little on which to run, blame the other guys for your failures. Politics 101, right, Harry?
