Democrats Consider One Of The Most Ineffective Members Of Congress For Leadership

At the House Democrats’ recent retreat, several younger Democrats were given prominent speaking roles. Politico reported that they were auditioning for future spots that might become available in the House leadership.

It is surprising to see California Democrat Ami Bera’s name on this list, given his recent appearance on the “Least Effective Members of Congress” list. Last summer, Inside Gov rated Bera the 22nd least effective member of Congress and he received an effectiveness score of ZERO. Bera has yet to pass a single bill in Congress.

That House Democrats are considering someone so ineffective for a leadership position demonstrates the weakness of their entire conference.
