The Do-Less Than Nothing Congress Must Provide Answers

This Congress is the 'Do-Less than the Do-Nothing Congress.' While Americans deal with skyrocketing health care costs and gas prices, and ask for comprehensive immigration reform and an increase in the minimum wage, the Republican leadership has Congress on track to meet fewer days than the infamous Do-Nothing Congress under President Truman fifty years ago. During the Memorial Day recess, Republicans will face tough questions from their constituents. They will be asked why seniors who were unable to navigate the confusing drug plan enrollment procedures are facing a lifetime tax. They will be asked why the Republicans passed a budget that makes the record deficits they created worse. And, they will be asked why Republicans' only idea on how to make America energy independent is more drilling.

Democrats have innovative policies to address America's challenges, and we look forward to working with the American people to make this country stronger at home and abroad.
