112th Congress expires on Jan 3, 2013 as one of the most unpopular in history. (18% Approval)Submitted by go213mph on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 19:52
But THEY GAVE THEMSELVES A RAISE!
Current Congress Has Passed Fewer Bills than any Since at Least the 1940s.
If the job of Congress is to pass laws, then the 112th Congress is the laziest in modern history. Of the 6,600 bills introduced, lawmakers passed only 231—and only a couple handfuls are pending. At least 45 of the successful bills involved the naming of federal buildings, while many others were similarly insignificant, such as six commemorative coin bills and five correcting “technical errors” Congress made in past legislation.
