Nothing Happening

*  Since the Republicans took control of the U.S. House of Representatives, very little has been accomplished.  Sure, the Republicans have tried to end Social Security and Medicare with Paul Ryan's budget.  They've titled bills as "job killers" and tried to abolish regulations.  Certain legislation that was put into place to prevent another Wall Street meltdown have been championed by the Republicans, and even Republican Rep. Steve Stivers (Ohio's 15th).  They've passed several bills to stop abortions, even though the bills are similar to other bills that were passed.  In the end, nothing has gotten done.  Boehner, Cantor, Paul Ryan, Gohmert, Stivers, and the rest of the GOPers have not created one job.

Next year will be a national election and the Republicans have put out their "work" calendar for 2012. Kos at DailyKos has posted the planned work days in the Republican controlled House of Representatives.:
