Of course their control over Congress is harmful, dangerous to the poor especially, in very concrete ways. The scap between Obama and the GOP over the budget is not a little thing. It's the difference between deficit reduction of four trillion, with a large part of that being taxes on the rich and cuts to military spending and more "back loaded" versus cuts of six trillion dollars, lower taxes for the rich, increasing military spending even making weapons systems that the generals and admirals themselves say are redundant and wasteful.
The difference is a lot of food stamps, aid to college students, effective or ineffective governmental agencies, fwer versus more teachers, etc. No small matters! And the people did vote for Democrats to represent them! Gerrymandering has given the GOP a whopping lopsided majority in Congress. We need to march, to do something! We should not let this go unnoticed.
