        it's probably better to accomplish nothing and wait til 2015 and hopefully Dems have a majority by then in the House AND Senate.

          So they need to accomplish SOMETHING. If you mean agree on the sequester levels of funding, sure that would be good. To date it hasn't happened, so if it does, it's another capitulation by the GOP. Not that the sequester is good, but in light of the political reality.
