14. If you can't see the difference between the Pelosi House and the Boehner House,

it is your lack of vision. The Pelosi House was limited by what could pass the Senate where 60 votes were needed.

Look at the damage caused by sequestration and look at the other losses in security net programs because they were used as hostages by the Republicans. Consider that the Republicans left the SNAP (food stamps) program out of the agricultural bill.

Things - like passing the budget - are important. The fact is that the party in control of the House has more control of what passes that house than the party controlling the Senate. (The Senate is a big deal because only they approve justices and cabinet positions and ambassadors.)
