Expectations for the 113th Congress: Only up from here

The 113th Congress kicked off Thursday, and with it, hopefully, renewed optimism. It can only go up from here.

The last two years on Capitol Hill have been the least productive in decades, with just 218 bills enacted into law. For comparison, the 111th Congress enacted 385 laws, and the 108th Congress enacted 528.
