It’s a bit hard to quantiatively measure just how ineffectual the current Congress is. But one of the least-bad ways is to add up the total number of pages’s worth of legislation passed in a given year; that way, you’re not just counting up the number of bills, a method that gives equal weight to Dodd-Frank and Post Office renamings. Chris Wilson at TIME added up the number of pages passed from 2001 to 2013 by each House, and found that 2011-2013 are the least productive years in either house over that period. This isn’t a perfect method; the Iraq War resolution was quite short, for instance, while mundane appropriations bills tend to run in the hundreds of pages. But it’s still a revealing indicator.
