So much for the obstructionist U.S. House. From 8th District Rep. Richard Hudson comes the facts about the obstructionist U.S. Senate. 

“I was encouraged by the results election night because I felt like the voters rewarded house Republicans for actually doing work and voters showed their displeasure with senate members who weren’t doing their work,” Hudson said. “We have 380 to 390 bills sitting on (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid’s desk and we can’t even get a hearing when there’s a lot of big issues the American people expect us to be addressing. I saw it as a sign that we need to get things done, solve problems, but we also need to change direction.”

Change coming soon.
