Less is sometimes more

Douglas Ernst nails it today about a report in the WaPo that the 113th Congress is the "least productive ever":

Did the Washington Post interview Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who infamously said of Obamacare that “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it”? If there are officials in Washington, D.C. who seem to think their job is to pass laws for the sake of passing laws, they should be outed immediately.

The Congressional Research Service has admitted that there are so many federal regulations that it can’t even tally them up. Its best guess? “Tens of thousands.” And yet, in the minds of the officials who run to the Washington Post to complain about the 113th Congress, it isn’t enough. There are always more people to control, new activity to monitor and behavior to tax. It never ends.

Indeed. Hell, I'd give the 113th Congress kudos if they repealed some laws, beginning with ObumbleCare. And any one recall "Plugs" Biden saying how we need new gun laws ... because we can't even enforce the gun laws already on the books??
