Great News! Congress Didn’t Do A Damned Thing This Year!

This Congress could be least productive since 1947 –

Just 61 bills have become law to date in 2012 out of 3,914 bills that have been introduced by lawmakers, or less than 2% of all proposed laws, according to a USA TODAY analysis of records since 1947 kept by the U.S. House Clerk’s office.

I had no idea things were this good. This may be my favorite congress ever!

Note, however, that the MSM’s new everyday chewtoy is how horrible this GOP do-nothing congress is, and how much people hate it. Couldn’t have anything to do with new orders to the Marxist Media from the White House and Representative Ryan being nominated as the GOP Veep, huh?

I think we really ought to be cheering this “First, Do No Harm” House.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Indeed!

    I have a pipe dream of a new Amendment that automatically sunsets all acts and laws of Congress after 10 years, and forbids any attempt to ‘roll up’ repassage into an omnibus bill. They’d be kept busy trying to keep ‘essential’ things going that a lot of the cruft would fall off of the calendar–and keep EITHER party from enacting an Obamacare that wouldn’t expire as soon as the House flipped.
