Congress In-Action

Can members of US Congress get anything done during this election year? Some observers may say probably not, if their past record is any indication.

OBAMA: If you have shown little talent for leadership and wasted years dealing with Congress, you may not get a do-over. Then you're outta the Oval, and that new president gets his four years. But if this happens, then what do we have to look forward to?

ROMNEY: Your perceived moderation may quickly stall your presidency, just as it did Abraham Lincoln. If history repeats itself, then consider that in 1862, in the middle of civil war, President Lincoln and US Congress bonded, so may you Mitt, find a way to motivate members of the US House and The Senate to work together before the end of 2014?

Only time will tell, but we do not have that much time left.
