Bachmann in charge.
The first bill introduced in the House this year was this:
At noon today, I introduced the first bill of the 113th Congress to repeal Obamacare in its entirety.

Believe it or not, that's the Obamacare repeal bill that the House will vote on this Thursday, for the 37th time. Michele Bachmann is setting the agenda for the House of Representatives. Can an institution possibly be more pathetic?

It's hard to imagine how. Sequester. Debt ceiling. Budget. Unemployment. That can all just wait, or never be addressed at all by House Republicans. The House is going to work just two full days this week, and one of them will be completely sucked up by a bill that won't ever advance to the Senate. Again. For the 37th time. That's another pointless waste of time and another $1.45 million in taxpayer money down the drain.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
