    REID. Mr. President, no matter how many times my friend--and we have served together in this body for a long, long time--comes here and talks about how wonderful this Senate is under Republican leadership, the facts aren't on his side. He talked about getting things done after years of inaction. The inaction was the result of Republican filibusters--recordbreaking filibusters.

    Bill after bill was blocked. Elementary and secondary education, cyber security, everything that he mentioned--everything, without exception--would have been done a long time ago except for Republican filibusters. To now come to the floor and claim: Isn't it wonderful we were able to get things done during this Congress, because we did not block things--no matter how many times he comes, we and the pundits have already said it is the most unproductive year in the Senate's history. We have had more revotes than at any time in the history of the country and less done than at any time in the country's history.
