My problem with the do nothing Congress

Is not that fewer laws have been passed. I am not a fan of legislation, however the biggest issue I have with this congress is that there has not only been less legislation but there has been less debate. It feels like the campaigning of both parties has simply went into the day to day business of running the country.
Honestly it seems like the hill is occupied by a bunch of children on both sides. Men and women who are polarized and entrenched with their party.
These children are more interested in photo ops and sound bites than they are getting things done.
I wish that some men and women would stand not on party but on principle and enact legislation that would cause debate change and help the people. Keep in mind you may not get reelected but should there be such a thing as a career politician?
I say no. Power corrupts everyone holding it. No matter who holds it. Power should be shared.
My other major problem with this do nothing congress is that when doing nothing there is a huge cost. There is a transportation bill in congress now. Without this bill the highways may not work. Has congress came to a decision about it?
We need adults in congress and the White house not children

BREAKING: Senate Republicans filibustered the Bring Jobs Home Act today July 30 ,2014. The bill received 54 votes, short of the 60 needed.

This is what I mean by Republican obstruction.

Ok, I have seen the bumper stickers and heard the arguement. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" and while that is both true and not true. It is like someone saying it is not the fall that kills you but the sudden stop at the end. Ever since the ...
