From this MSNBC article:
“His aide said Boehner is “proud of what this majority has accomplished,” but it’s not at all clear that it’s accomplished much of anything.”
In modern politics, getting nothing done (which is what the writer above really means when he uses the word “accomplished”) is not the same as not accomplishing anything. In modern politics getting nothing done is, potentially, a major accomplishment. Not only that, it is quite likely the best outcome for most citizens.
Joseph Ivy understand this.
