Will the real “Do-Nothing” Congress Stand Up….. And Leave.

05 Dec

Although Truman would never know that his 80th Congress was extremely productive compared to the 112TH Congress. Truman called the 1947-1948 Congress “Do-Nothing Congress.” because they passed 906 laws. However The Republican 112th Congress has now been confirmed as the least productive congress in history of the United States.  They have the glorious distinction of passing a paltry 196 laws. It must also be noted that 37 out of the 196 bills passed merely involved naming post offices, government buildings and property: Hardly a days work.  Not surprising, the 112th Congress has a public opinion ranging 10-14%.   Republicans should feel real proud that they could now claim the prestigious title of The Least Productive Congress in the History of the United States of America.  Congratulations Republicans. You have shown what you are good for – Nothing!”

    Yet they voted about 30 times to repeal Obamacare. That should count as productivity, right?

      Actually, they voted 33 times, and it is commonplace to judge productivity based upon accomplishment, regardless how small. There was 0 accomplishments in all 33 cases.

      I waited so I can now say that the count is over 40 attempts.

        You can just sit back and watch how doing nothing keeps piling up. I wonder if they can make it to 100.

    At this point, one attempt or 100 to Appeal the Affordable Care Act is wasting time and taxpayer money.
