So That's What Obama Meant By Change



Ever wonder what Congress does on the days when it's not working on something major like health care or unemployment?  Turns out . . . they're mainly renaming post offices.



--In the last 18 months, PRESIDENT OBAMA has signed 237 pieces of legislation that were passed by Congress.  27% were to rename post offices and other government buildings.



--That's the most of ANY category . . . more than bills focused on the economy, small business, foreign affairs, defense, health care, unemployment . . . ANYTHING.



--If you add in commemorations and other bills that set up symbolic declarations, the number jumps up to 33% . . . that's one-third of all the bills passed by Congress.



--This isn't just an Obama thing, by the way . . . 29% of all the bills signed by PRESIDENT BUSH were also ones that symbolically renamed buildings.
