U.S. House Speaker John Boehner has said that members of Congress should not be judged by how many new laws they pass, but rather by how many laws they repeal.

Republicans won’t cooperate with their Democratic counterparts on any meaningful new laws, but how many have they succeeded in repealing?

It sounds to me as if Boehner is admitting total failure. Is that why he and all our representatives were sent to Congress?
