That's just it, they ARE doing their elected job. Their job is to represent the wishes of the people who elected them. 2 years into Obamas term, and people were unhappy with the state of affairs, so in big numbers they voted in Republican congressmen. The fact that this happened in places where Democrats had enjoyed lengthy tenures tells you that folks who used to vote Dem obviously must have crossed the aisle and voted Republican.
You seem to be suggesting that the job of congress is to go along with whatever plan Obama floats up there. If "the people" wanted that, they would have re-elected more Democrats, there would be no Republican majority, thus bills would be passing quickly. That is not what happened. The message from those votes, while you may not agree with it, was clear.
