U.S. Senator Has Passed 8 Bills in 24 Years

In 24 years as a United States Senator, John Kerry has been the lead sponsor of only 8 bills that have become public law.

It appears that Senator John Kerry is too preoccupied with other things like going to Davos, Sun Valley, and windsurfing to do the job of representing Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate.

“I guess if we are to have a left-wing Senator, it’s better to have one that is preoccupied around the world than pushing a big government agenda,” said Robert Willington, executive director of the MassGOP.

The eight bills include legislation that renamed a post office and two bills for "World Population Awareness Week":
