I can't help but think that congress needs to inform itself with the help of the patent bar and then fix sections 101 and 103, e.g., by eliminating hindsight, reducing ambiguities and the incoherent mixing of obviousness with the analysis of utility. Although intelligent congressional action would be very helpful to the economy, the chance of congress clearing the air is nil. A near perpetual state of congressional dysfunction and incompetence suggests that they can do nothing. As usual, petty ideologue politics trumps real public needs.
