Garrett's Full of Sham

Here's something to think about - Representative Scott Garrett said the following regarding the deficit neutral patch of the AMT:

The bill was "really a sham by the Democrats. They know there is no chance of this becoming law," said Rep. Scott Garrett, R-Wantage, a member of the House
Financial Services and Budget committees.

So, in Garrett's eyes a bill with no chance of becoming law is a sham. Fair enough.

Just so everyone is clear, Garrett has introduced 64 bills in his career. Of that, 57 have not made it out of committee (no chance of becoming law). Of the seven that made it out, 2 became law.

I've been saying for the better part of two years when Garrett is talking about his school bill, highway bill, energy bill or basically anything that he touts as his "solution" to a problem that it has no way of getting made into law.

I suppose I should thank him for giving such a concise word to describe his time as our Representative: Sham.
