In this edition of Brookings Data Now: economic value of crude oil exports; millions of Syrians displaced by civil war; millions of Americans enrolled in Obamacare; trillions in U.S. foreign profits not repatriated; the leaders in sponsoring bills in 113th Congress.
Domestic crude oil production has surged in recent years.
Two million have fled to neighboring countries, more than 130,000 have died.
The figure includes both state-based and federal health insurance exchanges.
Due to tax law, many U.S. corporations keep these profits abroad.
Rep. Grayson, a Democrat from Florida, leads all House members. None of his bills made it through committee. Senator David Vitter (R-La.), leads the Senate in sponsoring 61 bills. None of his bills made it through committee, either.
