What makes this such a knee slapper is the claim the democrats have been making that they can't get anything done because of the Republicans. As I see it is these Senate democrats have the same difficulty a good many rank and file democrats have namely they are lazy deadbeats.
Confirmed: Democrat-controlled Senate the laziest in years

If the fact that the Senate — in defiance of the law — has failed to pass a budget in more than 1,000 days didn’t tip you off, a new report from Secretary of the Senate Nancy Erickson confirms that the current Senate is the laziest since 1992 (h/t Paul Bedard).
The Senate spent an average of just 6.5 hours in session on the 170 days it officially met, the second-lowest since 1992. The upper chamber passed just 90 public laws and 402 measures, both the second-lowest in 20 years. They confirmed just shy of 20,000 judicial and other nominations — or 19,815, a 20-year low.
It’s not just that the Senate is lazy, though: It’s that they’re apparently strategically lazy. Productivity is significantly down from 111th Senate, which met in 2009, when Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.
