If pro is the opposite of con is congress the opposite of progress?

Although "pro" often means the opposite of "con," the opposite of progress is either regression or stagnation (no progress). The observation that the (US) Congress is often seen as impeding progress might be applied to the level of its conservatism, or the fact that it often does the wrong thing for the wrong reason. There is no authoritative attribution to this humorous semantic observation, but many people feel it is true, at least some of the time.
