Do the Republicans plan on wasting the entire House session on bills with no chance of passage?

First health care, now planned parenthood. What about jobs? What about the economy? Why are they spending valuable time and resources on go-nowhere social issues when they could be doing their job to get our economy back on track. Are they just pandering to their new tea party leash holders?

If they were doing something about jobs and the economy this question would be a rant on why the Republicans aren't addressing their social platform. Why not ask a constructive, meaningful question?

You are just ignorant.

The purpose of those bills is to show how the Democrats are and always have been the real party of no. When the 2012 elections come around the Democrats are going to lose senate seats and very probably the presidency. Then we will see some real progress on these issues.

Their new "leash holders"? Are you referring to voters? Do you see a problem with elected Representatives advancing the agenda of their constituents?

Take a look at the first two answers. They don't even address your question. This has been their approach all along.

The less that gets done the SAFER the average American is. Sounds like a good plan to me.

Apparently, yes. But wait, it's all about jobs! And it's clear that defunding Planned Parenthood is going to create thousands of jobs! And ending public financing of campaigns will put huge amounts of people back to work! And defunding net neutrality regulations will save the economy!
