The House Isn't The Problem

Matt Yglesias makes a very important point on the occasion of the House passing a new ethics package.

While overall the post-2006 congress has been a massive disappointment, that is almost entirely due to the inability to overcome both filibusters and backslapping tradition in the Senate, . The house really has done a remarkably good job of reliably producing good legislation, which is then either ignored by the Senate or vetoed by the president.
