A new report by the Secretary of the Senate puts the first session of this Senate as the least productive in twenty years, as measured by hours per session and number of laws passed. I’m not sure how to feel about this one. Part of me wants to say, “Take that! Democrats! The Republican controlled House isn’t a do-nothing congress – it’s the Democrat-controlled Senate!”
The other part of me thinks this isn’t such a bad thing. After all, our economy has gotten marginally better, or at least stopped sliding backwards, since the gridlock began. The less time our Congress critters have to make laws and mess with our lives, the better.
