That's what a Time magazine puff piece says about Democrat Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Oliver North does not agree.
Notwithstanding Waxman's billing as a legislator who loves to "write laws, and he has been extraordinarily good at it," only three of the 95 bills he has sponsored in the past decade have been enacted. Seventy-seven of them were so good that they didn't even make their way out of committee.
According to Colonel North, Time magazine thinks so highly of Representative Waxman, that the Time Warner Political Action Committee donated $13,500 to Waxman's 2006 re-election campaign. Oddly enough Time did not consider that fact germane to the article.
