There is so much attention here and everywhere else on the Presidential election, it seems like we have forgotten that we are reelecting a Congress. (entire House and one third of the Senate) Forget the Democrat/Republican divide for a while, as this goes way beyond that. This is a Congress that has not governed, that is, done their job. They take off more days than they are in session, and when in session, they either do nothing or play political games. The leadership, both sides, in Congress is pathetic, all four of them, McConnell, Reid, Bonehead, and Pelosi. They have not passed a budget in three years. There is no excuse, none, nada, for the fiscal cliff. I wish there was a way to turn out everyone of them.
