My, how little you've accomplished, Senator. (that's dot O-R-G) did some research into the candidates' claims about how much or little John Kerry had accomplished in 20 years as a Senator.
Kerry counted all measures he wrote that were approved by the Senate. While Bush defined “bills” in the strictest sense, Kerry included bills, joint resolutions, concurrent resolutions with no force of law, and even simple Senate resolutions that aren't even considered by the House.

Go check it out for yourself. John Kerry even passed this highly important Senate resolution:
S.Res.123: To change the name of the Committee on Small Business to the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship." (2001)

He's even looking to the future and looking out for the planet since Bushitler "pulled out of" the Kyoto agreement:
S.Con.Res.26: Calling for the United States to support a new agreement providing for a ban on commercial mining of minerals in Antarctica. (1991)

Yep - if you're thinking about heading to Antarctica and to do some mining you're going to have to think twice. It's banned for 50 years.

Don't forget about the all important subject of world population. We must be aware of it, so:
S.J.Res.158: To make the week of Oct. 22 – Oct. 28, 1989 “World Population Awareness Week.” (1989)

S.J.Res.160: To renew “World Population Awareness Week” for 1991. (1991)

That's right, 'cause the World is overpopulated, you know.

So, what was it? 5 or 56? FactCheck says 11, but that's with an "IF". Looks like John has stretched the truth again. Are you surprised?
