The 24 Do-Nothing Members of the House of Representatives (June 21 2011)

As of June 21 2011, the following twenty-four members of the House of Representatives still have failed to introduce a single bill or amendment for consideration by the 112th Congress.

Most members of Congress in their first year have introduced legislation, but a few are still laggards. Members in their first term who have not introduced a single bill or amendment:

Rick Berg of North Dakota, conservative Republican
Mo Brooks of Alabama, conservative Republican
Larry Bucshon of Indiana, conservative Republican
Rick Crawford of Arkansas, conservative Republican
Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, conservative Republican
Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee, conservative Republican

Patrick Meehan of Pennsylvania, moderate Republican
Steven Palazzo of Mississippi, conservative Republican
Martha Roby of Alabama, conservative Republican
Bobby Schilling of Illinois, moderate Republican
Austin Scott of Georgia, conservative Republican

Some of the Do-Nothing members of Congress lack the newness to excuse their inactivity, and despite their veteran status are not getting around to the business of legislating. Returning members of the House who have not introduced a single bill or amendment:
Xavier Becerra of California, liberal Democrat
Ander Crenshaw of Florida, conservative Republican
Eni Faleomavaega, Democratic delegate
Jerry Lewis of California, conservative Republican
Richard Neal of Massachusetts, liberal Democrat
Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania, moderate Democrat
David Scott of Georgia, conservative Democrat

  1. IMHO, These “Do nothings” are a whole lot better than some of the status quo politicians creating more regulation and red tape, restricting freedoms or outright stealing them, raising our taxes, ect…

    I am a happy camper when these afore mentioned statist’s (nanny state) politicians arent in Washington DC and back in their districts with their constituents and away from the beltway lobbyists and special interest groups.

  2. I don’t understand why one has to introduce, an ammendment, a bill to be considered not doing anything. What about their voting record? I would consider no vote or a vote of “present” to be a do nothing.

  3. Proud to see my rep isn’t sticking his hand into my wallet like so many “activist” congressmen.

    AWESOME, AUSTIN!
