TRUMP ‘MOST PRODUCTIVE’ OF RECENT PRESIDENTS
When politics get murky, stay with the numbers to ferret out truth. Here are just such numbers, these from a snappy new report issued by House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
“To date, the Republican-led House has passed 158 bills, making it the most productive in the modern-era,” the pair say, noting that during the same amount of time, the House passed 131 bills during the Barack Obama administration, 67 during the George W. Bush era, 60 during Bill Clinton’s time in office and 41 during the George H.W. Bush presidency.
“To date, President Trump has signed 37 bills into law, placing him ahead of the last four administrations,” Mr. Ryan and Mr. McCarthy continue, revealing that Mr. Obama signed 24 bills at this point, the younger Mr. Bush 15, Mr. Clinton 33 and the senior Mr. Bush 35.
