I wonder how many bills/laws have been WRITTEN by and PASSED by your

favorite politician.

You can look it up as enacted legislation.

for instance, in a very very short period of time, Al Franken enacted 4 very important bills/laws or legislation

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/browse?sponsor=412378#enacted_ex=on


Some folks have been in government for a VERY long time and done little more than this, you can find out for yourself who they are.

Unfortunately the most active is Orrin Hatch, doing mostly bad things of course.

I suppose, for instance, if one was looking for a presidential candidate this might be one metric you could use to see just how effective they are in actual reality.

Liz Warren

and

Kamala Harris

Both are quite accomplished given their relatively short time in politics.

6. Common sense dictates if someone is effective in the Senate or House

then they are more likely to be in the WH.

7. Thanks. What a great resource. Next time I attend a Womack townhall,

I'll ask him about the one bill he got passed in 2011. He's been in the House for 8 years.
