Don’t kid yourself: Congress is broken

THE SUPPOSED accomplishments Joshua Green attributes to members of Congress in his column “Holiday kudos for Congress” (Op-ed, Dec. 28) are no-brainer laws they should be able to write and pass in their sleep. To list these as the best achievements of the year only shows just how dysfunctional Congress is.

The real work we need — the laws and changes that require vision and the tough decisions to do what’s right for the country and not the lobbyists — is absent. The system is broken and no amount of eggnog (or scraping the bottom of the barrel for accomplishments) can make it appear otherwise.
