    There could b alot accomplished and passed, like the american jobs act etc etc if the speaker of the house would stop going by the hasart rule, majority of majority, and put bills on floor 2 vote on. Bet this doesnt get a majority of majority. Just think, could have had grand bargin, simon-bowels, biden gang of 8 ect etc 3 yrs ago! There is an immigration bill sitting, violence against womens act.
