Here is what Joe Biden needs to FIX what's Broken in Washington

VP Joe Biden could use this tool-set to clear to the Grid-lock in D.C.

When the Voters Review their Congress Members work, the Bad ones get tossed out.

Two MOC's have Fallen since the application went live.

I can't imagine why a congressional challenger would not use this tool to give voters a great reason to vote against the incumbent.

Biden: Washington is "Broken"

Vice President Joe Biden doesn't seem to miss his days as a senator.

In an interview with CBS "Early Show" co-anchor Harry Smith, Biden was blunt about the nation's political system. "Washington, right now, is broken."

Having served in the Senate for more than 30 years, Biden has seen a fair share of gridlock in Congress, but the current version is the worst ever, he said.

"I don't ever recall a time in my career where to get anything done, you needed a supermajority, 60 out of 100 senators. You can block anything with 60 (votes).

"I've never seen it this dysfunctional," he said.

In light of the surprise Republican victory by Scott Brown in the race to replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy's senate seat in Massachusetts, Biden said the win was not solely a warning shot to Democrats.

"I think it was to everybody in public life, and it was, 'Hey, guys, get your act together. Get something going.'"

According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, most Americans are dissatisfied or angry about the way things are going in Washington these days. Eight in 10 say Congress is more interested in serving the needs of special interest groups rather than the people they represent.

But only a third of people feel the same way about President Obama. Nearly 60 percent think he is more interested in serving the American people.
