    "We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal." -- House Speaker John Boehner on CBS

    In the first six months of 2013, Congress has passed only 15 bills that have become law. At this pace, they will be even less productive than the preceding Congress (2011-2013) that passed only 23 laws that were enacted.

    In the meantime they have repealed Obamacare some 38 or 39 times. It's what they do to pass the time at taxpayers expense kmowing full well that the Senate will not follow their stupidity and ignorance.

    Congress continues to suffer from record-low approval ratings, much of it due to Boehner. Nevertheless, every piece of legislation that is blocked or repealed is considered a badge of honor for those Tea Party Republicans that were elected on a "no compromise - stop government" platform.

    If John Boehner wants to be judged on how many times his House of Representatives has repealed Obamacare, then I'll happily judge him on that, and also label him as the worst Speaker of the House..ever.
