Just wondering if Karl put to thought that Republicans wrote SOPA. Republicans wrote PIPA. Republicans control the law writing body of the government - Congress. Now do tell us what Democrats have done to the internet the last three years when they can't even manage to pass a bill on jobs through Congress.
Good job Karl.
Congress is not controlled by the Republicans. Not by a long shot.
The house of representatives is, but the Senate is not. And without the senate, good luck with Congress getting any legislation through. Even if it passes, the President can veto.
You need to take a civics class.
The house has proposed and passed a lot of legislation, but Harry Reid pretty much just kills it off in the senate. THis includes budgets (all spending bills must orgininate in the house). Obama and the democrats don't want anything that doesn't raise taxes on high earners. Don't believe the media hype about the Rs being "obstructionist." The Rs are passing legislation, it is the Senate that is blocking. The Rs control one half of one third of the legislative process.
