112th Congress is one of the least productive in years

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 04, 2011 11:36 pm

The 112th Congress is on pace to be one of the least productive in recent memory — as measured by votes taken, bills made into laws, nominees approved. By most of those metrics, this crowd is underperforming even the "do-nothing Congress" of 1948, as Harry Truman dubbed it. The hot-temper era of Clinton impeachment in the 1990s saw more bills become law.

There is no shortage of explanations for the apparent lack of legislative success. Political observers see hyperpartisanship and perpetual campaigning that makes once-routine steps politically perilous.

Coming off of the year before this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone

But it is surprising that the people who put them in there positions, paid positions are allowing it, especially as you say after last year, where nothing was done until December. And, for the record, they are spending our money and wasting time now trying to undo completed legislation of the last 4 years. These very people who claim the unemployed have no will to return to work!?! I guarantee we'd get more done on determination alone. Seems to me our Congress has no will to return to work and no determination to get things done.
