The News

(Washington Post) THE 113TH Congress, which wrapped up at the end of 2014, was not quite the worst in history. According to one measure — the raw number of initiatives passed — it just barely beat the 112th, which set a modern-day low well below that of the do-nothing Congress Harry Truman beat up in 1948. Suffice it to say that the past four years have been pretty dismal on Capitol Hill.

I find it interesting that pundits use the number of bills passed as a measure of congressional productivity. I would be more worried about the damage that would have been done if some of the proposed legislation had passed.
