Yes, writes Marci Harris and her team at PopVox:

The 114th Congress has passed a significant number of major policies into law: from ending a Medicare physician payment system that required a temporary “doc fix” every year for seventeen years, to repeal of No Child Left Behind; repeal of the NSA bulk data surveillance program with reauthorization of the PATRIOT Act, the first long-term transportation bill in a decade, a new version of toxic chemicals bill, and an update to the Freedom of Information Act.

Sadly, Harris notes in a separate piece, there are incentives that encourage media and politicos to hew to the “Congress gets nothing done and never compromises” and to little discuss the institution’s successes.
