Opening Arguments

Good job!

USA Today reports, as if it's a bad thing, that Congress has passed fewer laws this year than at any point in the past 66 years. But the proper attitude about that is:

Given the thousands of laws and hundreds of thousands of regulations on the books already, why exactly should we egging Congress on further? There's certainly been no shortage of landmark legislation that has passed this century, almost all of it awful from virtually any perspective.

Remember, gridlock is not the enemy. Somebody should tie all their hands behind them so they can't reach across the aisle.
