What needed legislation are you talking about? Be more specific. There is a lot of legislation that gets passed that isn't needed. Sometimes gridlock is a good thing. Just don't threaten to stop the day-to-day work of the government to get your own selfish way like some of the Republicans have done.
Boehner and his gridlock group are out. The question is, will Paul Ryan be more willing to cooperate with the democrats in Congress? He has expressed willingness, now the monkey is on his back regardless of whom or which party gets POTUS.
