Congress accomplished less in 2011 than ANY other year in history.
NO Surprise here:
Spokesmen for Senate Majority Leader Harry ('Dingy') Reid, Nevada Democrat, and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, did not respond to questions about the lack of action.
So what DID they do?
Of the bills the 112th Congress did pass, the majority were housekeeping measures, such as naming post office buildings or extending existing laws.
