Watch Your Assumptions

Or, Congress that refused to make things worse at historical pace ends.

Of course, this is The Hill, so they are biased to prefer things they can report.

Tip to Instapundit.

UPDATE: If this is unproductive, may we have more:

The federal budget is shrinking as a percentage of gross domestic product, falling just below 20 percent in the third quarter of 2014. That's down four points from its peak of 24 percent in 2011[.]

Nineteen percent is the historic average for the last half century.

Since "being productive" is generally defined as agreeing to spend money, why on Earth wouldn't we celebrate an historically "unproductive" Congress?

UPDATE: A late addition.
