And how many pieces of legislation? That doesn't matter, I guess:
"Maybe it's even more important than legislation," said Democratic Congressman Henry Waxman, a key player who chairs the House of Representatives' Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
The goal is to hamstring the President. The result is that the electorate hates them:
The Dems are so proud of their oversight and just can't seem to enact the legislation that would actually make the people happy. Any legislation that will promote transparency, get rid of pork, get rid of earmarks and improve ethics (seriously) will win big points.
NOT MUCH LOVE FOR CONGRESS: "A new Gallup Poll finds Congress' approval rating the lowest it has been since Gallup first tracked public opinion of Congress with this measure in 1974. Just 18% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, while 76% disapprove, according to the August 13-16, 2007, Gallup Poll."
