    Ryan has been in congress since the late 90's. More than a dozen years and all I could find was that.

    How long was Obama in the Senate? And what did he do?

    Senator Obama has sponsored or co-sponsored 570 bills in the 109th and 110th Congress.

    Senator Obama has sponsored or co-sponsored 15 bills that have become LAW since he joined the Senate in 2005.

    Senator Obama has also introduced amendments to 50 bills, of which 16 were adopted by the Senate.

    Most of his legislative effort has been in the areas of:

    Energy Efficiency and Climate Change (25 bills)
    Health care (21 bills) and public health (20 bills)
    Consumer protection/labor (14 bills)
    The needs of Veterans and the Armed Forces (13 bills)
    Congressional Ethics and Accountability (12 bills)
    Foreign Policy (10 bills)
    Voting and Elections (9 bills)
    Education (7 bills)
    Hurricane Katrina Relief (6)
    The Environment (5 bills)
    Homeland Security (4 bills)
    Discrimination (4 bills)

    List of Laws Obama Got Passed

    Check it out. It's a very long list.

    What Santorum said.

    Now, if anyone knows what Ryan did beyond what I found, please help me out here.

    Did you know out of the thousands of bill presented each year only 5 percent pass and the average is 1 per congress member per year?

    Oh and I forgot those bills which Obama only did on his own, since you seem to make a case because of the bills Ryan passed were seemed sparse.

    The fact is, Obama has solely sponsored only two pieces of legislation that have passed into law.

    One to name a post office, and one to support efforts in the Congo.

    In otherwords Obama spent a lot of our fucking money.

    I find it amusing that you fools think just passing bills left and right is a good thing. Fools

    We have enough laws already. Enough regulations. This last congress imo did the right thing and sat on their hands

    I love how you say Sponsored or "Co sponsored" 570 Bills for Obama.

    Pure Fantasy.

    That's the difference between someone who actually works in government and a big slug that is Paul Ryan.

    Guess Ryan spends a lot of time in the gym.
