Day 21 – My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary rather than just against Trump.
She’s an effective legislator.
She introduced just about the average number of bills for a Senator. However, she exceeds the average significantly for bill amendments, which is one of the important ways senators influence legislation. She was also a regular co-sponsor of important legislation (versus renaming streets and post offices, which is a big part of the legislation that gets passed).
I was surprised to learn how much legislation is proposed, and amended, and never passed. I noted in a comment yesterday that – on average – only 4% of all bills proposed are passed. Last year, it was only 2%.
