This Tweet was moderately popular over the weekend, so I share it here:
Do we still have a Congress? You think they’d mind passing a law or two, so the president can take break from doing all the legislating?

We’ve seen some life in the judiciary, much to the new president’s consternation.
When will we see some life out of the legislative branch — you know, doing stuff rather than just saying stuff?
I know they’re out of practice. And I know that a lot of the stuff they would do would be stupid — like repealing Obamacare without replacing it with something that actually leads to at least as many people having good coverage. But hey, “stupid” is relatively, and they can’t possibly look as bad on that score as the executive branch — can they?
