Republicans in Congress spent the year crafting historically unpopular legislation. First, they tried, tried, tried to pass health care reform, eventually giving up because the bills were so disastrous that even some Republicans could not get behind them. And then came the tax bill, which they passed just before Christmas even though a mere one-third of Americans said they supported the legislation, according to the political polling website FiveThirtyEight.
