"This year, Congress has passed and the president has signed into law 39 pieces of legislation by my quick count. They’re representatives, elected precisely to do such things. If we’re unhappy, the relevance of even-numbered years is fairly well established. Meanwhile, the people you didn’t elect to make laws but who do so regardless -- the 291,676 federal regulatory agency employees -- have issued 3,801 final regulations in the past 365 days; 919 of them just the past 90 days."
