Are most bills introduced by Congress passed but not enacted because they are unconstitutional?

No. The Supreme Court can't declare unenacted legislation (i.e. a law) unconstitutional until it's passed and challenged in the courts. The Judicial branch is not part of the legislative process.Most bills (Senate) and resolutions (House of Representatives) never get out of their respective houses; some get killed in committee, some get tabled indefinitely, some are voted down on the floor.A bill or resolution must pass both the Senate and the House of Representatives, then be signed into law by the President before it can be enacted.More measures are killed by partisan in-fighting and competing legislation than anything else.

Does the legislative branch pass laws?

No, they do not pass laws, they pass Bills. Technically they pass a Bill which, once it passes both house of Congress is sent to the President and when the President signs it, THEN it becomes a law.
