The 112th Congress has passed only 61 bills this year, making it the least productive Congress in the post-WWII era, according to a USA Today analysis. Since Republicans gained a majority in the House of Representatives, Congress has passed less than 2 percent of all bills into laws. One of the few things it’s agreed on is renaming post offices, even though the U.S. postal service still requires congressional action to save it. A recent Gallup Poll found that just 10 percent of Americans approve of Congress, the lowest in history.
