Prepare for a do-nothing US Congress.


If you thought the current United States political system was of the do-nothing variety despite the President’s party having a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, then get ready for a spectacular couple of years of inactivity from next year.
The indications are that no party will be anywhere near control with the Democrat President Barack Obama saddled with a Republican majority House and his own team hanging on in the upper chamber with a bare majority.
The Iowa Electronic Market assesses the probabilities this way:
