As a kid, I remember the phrase "It takes an act of Congress" being used to describe anything that took a long time or was extremely difficult. As an adult and a member of Congress, I learned firsthand what that means. Yet, just before Memorial Day, I voted for a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would make it easier to terminate employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs. It passed 390 to 33. It was remarkably fast action in a body known to go slower than most snails.
