I got this email in my inbox today. Its from congress.org, and it talks about the 10 " most hopeless bils"
The 10 Most Hopeless Bills on Capitol Hill
In Congress, some bills get a shot and others don't.
With more and more bills introduced each session, the number that actually make it to the president's desk is comparatively low.
During 2007 and 2008, 11,077 bills were introduced in Congress, while just 460 were signed into law. That means for every new law that session there
were 23 bills that didn't make it out of Congress.
To be fair, some of those bills were resolutions congratulating sports teams that wouldn't have gone to the president or bills introduced just to
make a point.
Still, some of those unenacted bills stand out for their sheer hopelessness.
Read the complete story or learn more about the individual bills below.
1) Opening trade with Cuba. 2) Electing shadow senators. 3) Changing presidential succession. 4) Allowing the president a third term. 5) Creating term
limits for Congress. 6) Tracking gun purchases. 7) Decriminalizing personal use of marijuana. 8) Allowing everyone to join Medicare. 9) Abolishing the
Federal Reserve. 10) Starting a U.S. Department of Peace."
