The 112th Congress is setting records for being the most ineffective, least productive, Congress since World War II!
The last time this situation existed was the Republican 80th Congress of 1947-48, but even they accomplished more than this present, pitiful Congress!
Only 91 bills have passed in 2012, added to 60 for 2011, so a low total of 151 is truly an embarrassment!
Comparing this to the 111th Congress of 2009-2010, we find that Congress passed 125 laws in 2009, and 258 in 2010, for a grand total of 383.
So two and a half times as many bills were passed in 2009-2010, as compared to 2011-2012.
Usually, 6-10 percent of bills introduced pass into law, but this Congress it is a mere 2 percent!
This is partly due to the impact of the Tea Party Movement, which has caused the complete loss of reputation of the Republican Party in the House of Representatives.
No wonder the public opinion rating of Congress is ten percent in the last polling!
