The creationist, global warming-denying Republicans, whose incompetence nearly destroyed the economy, continue to harp on Benghazi while ignoring the WMD lie. They have repeatedly voted against Obamacare while proposing nonsense to replace it with.

They regained the majority in the House in 2010 by promising jobs but instead have destroyed jobs along with passing union-busting "right-to-work-for-less" laws. They refuse to do anything to reduce gun violence. They falsely claim the primary purpose of Planned Parenthood is to provide abortions.

They slant, distort and deny facts in an effort to demonize President Barack Obama. They enacted the dumb sequester cuts that harm the needy but quickly modified a part of it so their plane flights would not be delayed.

The "party of family values" elects philanderers to Congress and voted against equal pay for women. Have they done anything significant for the poor and middle class?
