|The Daily Quote|
…Statistically speaking. The 112th Congress has had few real accomplishments on the legislative front: An overhaul of patent laws, three trade agreements, a contentious payroll tax cut package and the annual defense authorization law headline a paltry list of 80 laws, 20 percent of which either named a federal building or appointed a trustee to a federally appointed board. It’s the fewest number of laws created by the first session of a Congress since at least 1959.”
