“There are currently over 350 bills that have passed the House of Representatives but remain stuck in the Senate,” Poe said on Wednesday. “But the process is stalled in the Senate where these bills still sit on Senator Reid’s desk collecting dust.

Poe said the House measures would help create jobs, but that Senate Democrats are blocking those efforts.

“The House has taken action and passed good legislation to address important issues facing our country from energy to job creation,” Poe said.

Reid has argued that the House wastes too much of its time taking votes to repeal parts of ObamaCare and to sue President Obama.
