36 Bills Passed By The House And Stuck In The Democratically Controlled Senate

Obama Lies About RepublicansPresident Obama continues to lie about the Republican Congress. His repeated charge that the Republicans in the House of Representatives are a "do nothing Congress" is a blatant lie. Below is a documented list of 36 bills passed by the House that are stuck in the Senate because Harry Reid, the Democrat Majority Leader will not allow them to be brought to the floor for a vote.

The "do-nothings" are Obama's own party in the Senate

It gets even worse: Not only does President Obama lie to the American public about the Republican House, he fails to tell us that it is his own party that is holding up the work of the Republicans. While Obama lies about the Republican Congress, which has done its job—including passing a budget each year—the Senate has not passed a budget in almost four years even though the Constitution requires it to do so.

The below bills were passed by the House as a way to help create jobs in America at a time when unemployment has been above 8% for more than 30 consecutive months and 23 million Americans still don't have jobs.  Unfortunately these bills are stalled in the Democratically-controlled United States Senate.
