Jonathan B5"Congress Gets In 12 Solid Hours Of Gridlocking Before Calling It A Day" is this weeks article by the Onion news source on May 4,2011. The author is unknown and the intended audience is anyone that follows politics. The purpose of this article is to tell the reader how hard congress is working. The main idea is to tell how much they are not doing. Just as House Speaker John Boehner said "There is nothing more satisfying than knowing you've just put in a full day of bringing our nation's legislative branch to a complete stand still."

jessicav5The news broadcast “Congress Gets In 12 Solid Hours Of Gridlocking Before Calling It A Day,” on May 4, 2011, is about leaders from both side of the parties coming together to say that Congress finished 12 long hours of non-stop gridlocking. This is written for voters who are mad at Congress because they aren’t able to get anything done. The main idea is sarcasm toward the House and the Senate. They worked for 12 hours and got nothing done. Some people went right through their lunch breaks just so they could finish gridlocking. It seems like the quotes they gave could not be real. I wonder if they will get in trouble for these quotes that make fun of them getting nothing done.
JasmineB5This article is called "Congress Gets In 12 Solid Hours Of Gridlocking Before Calling It A Day (Legislators Proudly Call Gridlocking Session A 'Team Effort') ". It was published on theonion.com on May 4, 2011.This artice is about how much "work" Congress puts into Gridlocking, even though im not too sure what gridlocking is or how it works, it sounds pretty complex. This article was really written towards more political people than anyone else. I think the purpose was that even thought they dont always suceed, its still a big accomplishment. This entire article was all about gridlocking and how because of the amount of congress their never gonna all agree on one thing. Even though this article was kinda borning, i found it pretty interesting when theyr were saying how they go home and are proud at the fact that they didnt accomplish something, that what made me reread it a couple times to make sure i didnt skip anything. I still think i did though, because it suprised me to see how anyone could ever be so proud about not suceeding in something.
