When Gabrielle Giffords returned to the House today to deliver her resignation letter, Congress members experienced a rare moment of unanimity.

Giffords herself didn't speak, but her close friend Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) wept as she read the resignation letter, in which Giffords promised to return to Congress:

Every day I am working hard. I will recover and will return and we will work together again for Arizona and for all Americans.

Then the House then voted on Giffords' final piece of legislation, a bill that proposes tougher laws against drug-smugglers crossing he Mexican border in low-flying planes. Giffords cast her last vote, and the bill passed unanimously.

Because, dummy, government has the power to regulate controlled substances. However, government has no authority to create jobs out of thin air.
