From the Houston Chronicle - 

Texas Gov. Rick Perry fares worse against Hillary Clinton than any other potential Republican presidential candidate, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

Perry, who says he is thinking and praying about a possible 2016 presidential candidacy, trails the former Secretary of State by 16 percentage points — 52 percent to 36 percent — in a hypothetical general election match-up. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan also trails Clinton by 16 points, 53 percent to 37 percent.

The strongest Republicans included in the McClatchy-Marist poll were New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (6 percentage points behind Clinton) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (down by 8 points).

In a GOP primary contest, Perry places a poor seventh at 4 percent. Freshman Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finished sixth with 7 percent.

Cruz was not known by enough voters nationally to make a statistically valid match-up against Clinton.

The top tier of GOP contenders were Christie, Ryan and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. But no potential candidate topped 15 percent in a wide-open race.

I just ready great line about the obstructionist Sen. Mitch McConnell from his Democratic contender, Alison L. Grimes.

"If doctors told McConnell that he had a kidney stone, he's refused to pass it."

ROTFL!

They lack a plan which is why they also lack the votes (at least on the national stage).

The following article was published a few weeks ago, but thus far only 15 bills have become law this year.

Maybe we could provide some incentives to Congress by limiting them to per diem and then pay them a bonus for each legislative bill that becomes a law?
