By Washington metrics, they are a tandem disaster because they’ve only managed to pass 260 lousy pieces of legislation. I don’t know how many lousy bills a Congress has to pass for Time to consider them “transformative,” but 260 makes you a do-nothing Congress, which, since 1948, is the lowest kind of Congress you can be. Frankly, if I were ever a member of a do-nothing Congress, I would kill myself to escape the shame of it.
Anyway, here are some of the finer legislative achievements of the 110th, according to Time:
- Of the 260 pieces of bad legislation, 74 of them concern naming post offices.
- July is National Watermelon Month.
- Dirt has been declared a natural resource; so wash your grubby hands, that filth under your nails is taxable.
